Colors Protection, Salts Opponent

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 colorants products that fade. A system for the success of interior nano-dyed polished architectural concrete floors @MatureAge™.
Using a GreenCut Abrasives System™ that includes a surface refinement cutting agent, GreenCut™. Profiled with power towels or grinders with production rates that seem unfair compared to the completion—processed using wet abrasive process principle GC abrasives – BigStock™, GC-X™, Fusion™, Eraser™, and PolishPlus™ – to create a mechanical surface that provides a physical defense with any specified class of profile or gloss chosen.
The Color Defense System than covers the field with DryShield™, our highly abrasion-resistant flagship densifier that fills the concrete void. Following with Shield & Enhance™, a concrete colorant that prevents oxidation of the dye at the surface by cross-linking to the treatments in the system, far superior to UV inhibitors—additionally adding salt with superior stain protection—then finishing the defense with Interior Microfilm™, a repairable wear-guard that brings clarity to the profile. Color Defense promotes bonding and cross-linking within the concrete without the negative side-effect of ASR or topical de-lamination found with other products. Finally, maintain with GreenClean™, a LifeCycle™ cleaner with densifier built in that keeps the color in and drives contaminants out. This is the team that plays together.

Reference – ASTM D-1308

Testing was completed on 1 cubic inch concrete samples that had been treated with a three-part protocol using DryShield, Shield & Enhance and Microfilm (or RTU Microfilm). Each cube was completely immersed in the respective chemicals for 48 hours. No visually perceptible changes occurred in any sample surface texture or appearance (color).

Execution:  Process, Equipment & Abrasives

Green Umbrella™ equipment and abrasives are designed specifically for wet grinding.  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 the inhalation of these dangerous airborne particulates improving IAQ (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.

Cut Your Labor

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

Cut Your Downtime

A system installed in days instead of weeks, weeks instead of months.  Processing and completing 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 with the slab, and easier to maintain.
