one abrasive, one defense
Green Umbrella® MaxDefense System™ fuses a cut with one abrasive with Color, Densifier, and a rearguard. 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 GF Fusion™ abrasive cut combined with ColorShield™ produces a uniques 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 — 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 and mixed before application. Colorfast, hardened, chemically resistant, easy to apply, repairable. ColorFusion creates the best of both worlds — using environmental friendly low VOC solutions that have simplified the colored concrete landscape.

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.
GreenCut™ starts creates a slurry that produces a denser surface, reducing 7 Abrasive cuts to as few as two.
GreenCut™ Big Stock abrasives can be used for increased aggregate exposure. Ideal for architectural concrete featuring a large aggregate reveal. Optional
Green Umbrella™ GC-X are powerful 10 segment metal abrasives designed for use with Green Umbrella™ GreenCut™. Optional
Green Umbrella™ 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 GCErasers are designed for use with Green Umbrella™ GreenCut™.
An Erasers class of semi-metal honing abrasives. Engineered for specific surface refinement.
Designed for use within both Green Umbrella Base Defense and Max Defense polishing systems, our GC Polish Plus+ resins finish off the process to achieve the desired RA.
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.
Shield & Enhance™ is an environmentally formulated premium hardener. Shield & Enhance ™ is engineered as a colorguard to enhance colored and profiled architectural concrete floors, providing a darker, clarified-gloss appearance. As a unique oxidation inhibitor, Shield & Enhance™, significantly increases a salt pigmented or nano dye’s life-cycle, extending colorfastness.
Features & Benefits
- Quick installation, easy to change colors or repair if necessary
- UV stable color – can be used both inside and outside without fading
- No need for sealers, paints or epoxies that flake off
- Increases hardness and density while reducing porosity
- Not a stain – no harmful or toxic chemical polishing
- No need for concrete to be flat , ColorFusion follows contoured surfaces
- Stands up to heavy abrasion while providing excellent slip resistance
- Increased hardness and density
- Formulation will not contribute to ASR
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 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 incorparated with the slab, and easier to maintain.
