Green Umbrella® Canvas Control™ is a system for interior or exterior applications. Installed @EarlyAge™ using components that cure, color, eliminate control joints and concrete shrinkage, and reduce curl. This system reduces product usage by 50% compared to conventional concrete placement methods. Start with GreenCanvas™, a component for shrinkage compensating concrete, eliminating the expense of joint cutting, filling, and maintenance. For architectural concrete, include ColorPac™, an integral colorant that is more sustainable and economical than conventional surface colorants, and FiberLite™, a unique isotropic fiber that is transparent in the mix. Finish with the GreenIce Cure & Cap™ system—IceStart™, IceStop™, and IceCap™—to provide a day-of-placement cure with densification benefits. Canvas Control is a complete abrasive-free system for architectural and non-architectural concrete placements. This high-performance slab has 2 ½ times the lifecycle of conventional concrete. It gives the concrete a stretched canvas that’s right for anything that’s put on it. Honestly, exhibition ready!

Canvas Control System
Green Umbrella® Canvas Control™ is a system for interior or exterior applications. Installed @EarlyAge™ using components that cure, color, eliminate control joints and concrete shrinkage, and reduce curl. Using this system, product usage is reduced to six from conventional concrete placement methods that require twice the amount of products.
ColorPac™ integral colors are natural iron-oxide pigments that are permanent and UV stable—engineered to establish performance with even color appearance, stability, and durability in all @EarlyAge™ concrete placements. ColorPac™ is packaged with the concrete producer in mind in water-soluble bags.
IceStart™ is a unique curing agent used to ensure an adequately cured floor and is the first of the two-part GreenIce Cure™ system. It uses a treatment and trowel process to achieve high-performance floors.
IceStop™ is the second part of the GreenIce Cure™ system. IceStop is applied after IceStart™ to create a protected and properly cured concrete slab. After the floor is properly cured, IceStop™ increases the strength and longevity of the slab.
After the floor has been treated with IceStart™ and IceStop™, IceCap™ is applied to achieve the same brilliance as a traditional profiled, honed, and polished floor. In addition to the unparalleled high-gloss finish, IceCap adds additional UV protection and abrasion resistance.
