Cover your bases

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—BigStock™, GC-X™, Eraser™, and 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.

Process, Equipment, & Abrasives

Green Umbrella equipment and abrasives are designed specifically for wet profiling. Equipped with a standard quick change system to promote even abrasive wear and quick field changes, cutting downtime on PHP projects.

The wet process eliminates airborne crystalline silica dust and its potential health hazards, such as silicosis due to inhaling these dangerous airborne particulates, and improves indoor air quality. Propane is one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels, cutting emissions and leaving a smaller carbon footprint than a typical electric model.

GreenCut® starts by creating a slurry that produces a denser surface, reducing seven abrasive cuts to as few as two.

GC-BigStock™ abrasives can be used for increased aggregate exposure. Ideal for architectural concrete featuring a large aggregate reveal. Optional.

GC-X™ abrasives are powerful 10-segment metal abrasives designed for use with Green Umbrella® GreenCut®.

Optional.

GC-Fusion™ abrasives are a hybrid bond of industry-leading metals and resin. Four different abrasive grits are available to achieve the desired RA (roughness average) on the slab.

The GC-Eraser™ class of semi-metal honing abrasives is engineered for specific surface refinement. Optional.

Designed for use within Green Umbrella® Base Defense™, Max Defense™, and other profile systems, our GC-PolishPlus™ abrasives finish off the process to achieve the desired surface sheen.

DryShield™ is a formulated concrete hardener and densifier that cuts environmental impact. Reaching deep into the subsurface, DryShield creates more than a conventional shell surface.

Interior MicroFilm™ is an R.T.U. repairable impregnating micro-treatment for abrasively profiled architectural concrete floors.

Features & Benefits

HIGH-PERFORMANCE CONCRETE

  • Resists penetration by oils, chemicals, and other stain-causing materials
  • Decreases black tire marking from lift trucks and other equipment
  • Excellent resistance to efflorescence, fungi and mildew growth
  • Stands up to heavy abrasion and floor traffic while providing excellent slip resistance
  • Not prone to whitening
  • Will not peel or flake
  • USDA/FDA approved for incidental food contact
  • Very low maintenance
  • Adds dust- and stain-proofing properties
  • Increased hardness and density

Cut your labor

An entire system designed to do more with less. Machines 40% more productive, a cutting agent that eliminates steps, and densifiers that are spray and go all add up to substantial labor savings.

 

Cut your Downtime

A system installed in days instead of weeks, weeks instead of months. Process and complete a polished floor without holding up a project.

 

Cut your Environmental impact

Environmentally friendly treatments, water- and silica-based. Reduces construction waste with a finished product incorporated in the slab and is easy to maintain.
