Should 500MR (Bean-e-doo®) be used on Wood?

Answer:500MR (Bean-e-doo®) should not be used on wood because it will immediatly soak into the fibres of wood and stay there a long time - like month. While it is there, no coating or adhesive will cure on the wood, because 500MR (Bean-e-doo®) will leach out and do what it dose - dissolve coating and adhesives. It will also make the wood dark, as though it had been stained dark. We preffer using 600GL (SOY-Gel) or Heritage No 1, more in at 600GL (SOY-Gel) or Heritage No 1 -- ˆ Top ˆ
