ARCHITECTURAL CONCRETE

 
Base Defense System Logo transparent

Green Umbrella® Base Defense™ system is a basic entry-level, complete system for interior architectural concrete floors to be abrasively processed @MatureAge™. Start with a wet process and the liquid surface refinement cutting agent GreenCut™. Profile with a conventional grinder or a fitted finishing trowel. Various GC abrasives—GC-BigStock™, GC-X™, GC-Eraser™, and GC-PolishPlus™—play ball with any specified class of profile or gloss. Base Defense first covers the field with DryShield™, our highly abrasion-resistant flagship densifier that fills the concrete voids. Get a home run finish with the repairable wear-guard, Interior Microfilm™, bringing clarity to the profile. Base Defense promotes bonding and cross-linking within the concrete without the negative side-effect of ASR or topical delamination. Finally, use GreenClean™—part of the LifeCycle™ Maintenance system—to create a daily defense for the floor. All of this to cover your bases.

Color Defense System Logo

Green Umbrella® Color Defense™ system wins a high-performance architectural concrete floor with products designed to protect color. Created for owners and design professionals who have experienced the failure of colorant products. A system for the success of interior nano-dyed polished architectural concrete floors @MatureAge™. Uses a GreenCut™ abrasives system for surface refinement. Profiled with power trowels or grinders with production rates that seem unfair compared to the competition. Processed using a wet cut and GC abrasives—GC-BigStock™, GC-X™, GC-Fusion™, GC-Eraser™, or GC-PolishPlus™—to create a mechanical surface that provides a physical defense with any specified class of profile or gloss chosen. The Color Defense system then covers the field with DryShield™, our highly abrasion-resistant densifier that fills the concrete voids. It is followed up with Shield & Enhance™, a concrete colorant that prevents oxidation of the dye at the surface by cross-linking to the treatments in the system. Next, build an even stronger defense with Interior Microfilm™, a repairable wear-guard that brings clarity to the profile. Finally, maintain with GreenClean™, a LifeCycle™ cleaner with a built-in densifier that keeps the color in and drives contaminants out. This is the team that plays together.

Green Umbrella® Max Defense™ system wins a high-performance architectural concrete floor with products designed to play well together. Created for owners and design professionals who have experienced the failure of products that do not team well. A system for the success of interior polished concrete @MatureAge™. Uses a GreenCut™ abrasives system that includes the surface refinement cutting agent GreenCut. Profile with a conventional grinder or a fitted finishing trowel to see unfair production rates compared to the competition. Process using selected GC abrasives—GC-BigStock™, GC-X™, GC-Eraser™, and GC-PolishPlus™—to create a superior mechanical foundation defense with any specified class of profile or gloss. The Max Defense system first covers the field with DryShield™, our highly abrasion-resistant flagship densifier that fills the concrete void. Shield & Enhance™ is next in the lineup to protect from salt with superior stain protection. Bring a fantastic finish with Interior Microfilm™, a repairable wear-guard that brings clarity to the profile. Max Defense promotes bonding and cross-linking within the concrete without the negative side-effect of ASR or topical delamination found with other products. Maintain with GreenClean™ as part of the LifeCycle™ Maintenance system. All of this is  a concrete floor’s best game plan.

ColorFusionDefenseSystem Logo transparent

Green Umbrella® ColorFusion Defense™ system fuses a cut with one abrasive with color, densifier, and wear-guard. The substrate is prepared using a simplified abrasive profile or honing process. Next, a UV stable color hardener—ColorShield™—is introduced and built up from the near subsurface, creating a uniquely durable, natural, or colored concrete surface. A single GC-Fusion™ abrasive cut combined with ColorShield produces a unique, soft color blended appearance. The ColorFusion system presents a value-engineered option to achieve an architectural concrete floor with a fully abrasively processed floor in a fraction of time. Use in varied environments with high moisture (challenging the success of traditional salt dyes) or UV exposure, interior and exterior applications, leaving you to choose ColorBox™ or NanoDye™ as your color base, mixed before application. Colorfast, hardened, chemically resistant, easy to apply, repairable. ColorFusion Defense creates the best of both worlds—profiled and sealed architectural concrete—using environmentally-friendly, low VOC solutions that have simplified the colored concrete landscape.

SYSTEMS SPECIFICATIONS

Why Specify a System?

Successful teams are cohesive, play well together, overcome adversity, and present a consistent product every time.

Green Umbrella’s treatment systems do just that—produce consistent results using a family of treatments that have many features and benefits, such as being pH neutral, 100% reactive, and low or zero VOC.

Green Umbrella Certified

Why Use Certified Contractors?

To meet the need of finding contractors who can be relied upon to consistently meet specifications, Green Umbrella has been instructing and training contractors in the Green Umbrella mechanical process and treatment applications that create an architectural concrete floor.

When contractors successfully complete our comprehensive training program, we can confidently refer them to you.

Green Umbrella Certification Levels

Green Umbrella has three different levels of certification offered to meet your needs. The Green Umbrella Applicator, the Green Umbrella Craftsman, and the Green Umbrella Master Craftsman are trained at different levels and certified to use our concrete treatments for an earth-friendly concrete floor. Finally, we offer Green Umbrella Approved Producers.

NEW OR EXISTING CONCRETE

Base Defense

The Base Defense system includes products that complement one another. Dry Shield™ increases hardness while reducing porosity in polished concrete floors. Green Umbrella Interior MicroFilm™ is an environmentally friendly hybrid surface treatment that creates a durable, micro-thin layer to seal polished concrete.

  • Requires no rinsing and disposal, will not gel on the surface, and can be allowed to air dry
  • Stands up to heavy abrasion and foot traffic while providing excellent slip resistance
  • pH neutral and does not interfere with the application of concrete dyes
  • Decreases black tire marking from lift trucks and other equipment

MAX DEFENSE

Concrete treatments that complement one another and are coupled with the proper mechanical processes for profiling, honing, and polishing to create a winning combination. Max Defense includes:

  • Dry Shield™ has one of the highest abrasion resistance levels on the market
  • Shield & Enhance™ has a superior chloride screen
  • Interior Microfilm™ offers a repairable surface layer, making the Max Defense treatment system a team that has you covered

COLOR DEFENSE

Coupled with a properly profiled, honed, and polished floor, complimentary products can create a winning combination for your architectural concrete floor. The Color Defense system includes:

  • Dry Shield™ has one of the highest abrasion resistance levels on the market
  • Shield & Enhance™ has a superior chloride screen
  • Interior MicroFilm™ offers a repairable surface layer
  • NanoDye™colorant for a deep penetrating color that won’t fade

COLORFUSION DEFENSE

The ColorFusion Defense system comprises treatments that create a decorative concrete surface with UV stable micro-colorants and a neutral gloss finish. With a double abrasive process or with broom-finished concrete, the ColorFusion Defense system can be applied to add color and chemical resistance to any solid concrete surface. It includes:

  • ColorShield™ provides UV-stable color and can be used both inside and outside to beautify concrete
  • Interior MicroFilm™ is an environmentally friendly hybrid surface treatment that creates a durable, micro-thin layer to seal polished concrete
