ABRASIVE CONCRETE POLISHING

Architectural Concrete Systems designed for Existing concrete or New Construction

 

“Making the Complex … Simple.”

Max Defense

The best defense, protecting your investment in Architectural Polished Concrete.  The Max Defense System begins with the use of a liquid cutting agent – GreenCut, to mechanically refine the concrete surface.  DryShield is applied to ‘fill the voids’ in the concrete surface and produce the industries hardest and most abrasion resistant surface.  Shield & Enhance adds a chloride screen and when used in the Max Defense with Color System – enriched color.  MicroFilm is applied in 3 applications and burnished with a Green Umbrella recommended black pad on a high speed propane burnisher.

This is our most complete system, addressing the needs of polished concrete in any environment.  Never settle for the minimum when Max Defense is available.    

Base Defense

Green Umbrella recommends this as the minimum for any Profile, Hone and Polish (PHP) Architectural Concrete floor.  Base Defense begins with the use of a liquid cutting agent – GreenCut, to mechanically refine the concrete surface.  If your project will be Base Defense with Color, color may be introduced.  DryShield is applied to ‘fill the voids’ in the concrete surface and produce the industries hardest and most abrasion resistant surface.  MicroFilm is applied in 2 applications (at least) and burnished with a Green Umbrella recommended black pad on a high speed propane burnisher.

Before climbing Everest you have to start at Base camp, polishing concrete can feel like climbing a mountain – Base Defense will equip you to succeed and stay on top.

Color Fusion

Introduce color or leave concrete with its natural color with the added protection of the Green Umbrella Color Fusion System. 

Prepare the architectural concrete surface using a Green Umbrella Fusion abrasive in 1, 2 or 3 steps making sure to leave the concrete surface properly prepped for Green Umbrella ColorShield.

Apply ColorShield in 2-3 applications and burnish using a Green Umbrella recommended black pad on a high speed propane burnisher.  The resultant concrete surface will benefit from good chemical resistance and a unique repairability that makes this versatile concrete system a valid option in a variety of environments. 

Versatile – Color Fusion is uniquely suited to both indoor and outdoor applications due to the possibility of using UV stable colorants.  Economical – Concrete surface prep can be limited to a single abrasive cut making it economical and well-suited to rapid project completion.

 

 

 

ABRASIVE POLISHING NEW CONCRETE

GreenIce Cure & Polish

GreenIce Cure & Polish provides a cure and finish for concrete which stops moisture related deterioration issues and other moisture problems. Concrete failures due to salt, chemical penetration, moisture penetration and freeze-thaw cycles cause most of the concrete deterioration in the country. The GreenIce Cure & Polish is designed to cure concrete faster, increase abrasion resistance and add a high-gloss finish!

GreenIce Canvas Control

GreenIce Cure & Polish provides a cure and finish for concrete which stops moisture related deterioration issues and other moisture problems. Concrete failures due to salt, chemical penetration, moisture penetration and freeze-thaw cycles cause most of the concrete deterioration in the country. The GreenIce Cure & Polish is designed to cure concrete faster, increase abrasion resistance and add a high-gloss finish!

ABRASIVE POLISHING EXISTING CONCRETE

BaseDefense

Green Umbrella BaseDefense Concrete Treatment Systems includes products which complement one another. GreenUmbrella Dry Shield™ increases hardness while reducing porosity in polished concrete floors. Green Umbrella Microfilm™ is an environmentally friendly hybrid surface treatment creating a durable micro-thin layer to seal polished concrete.

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

Color Fusion

Green Umbrella ColorFusion Treatment Systems is comprised of products which will creates a decorative concrete surface with UV stable micro-colorants and a neutral gloss, mottled finish. Coupled with a 2 diamond process or on open broom finished concrete, Green Umbrella ColorFusion Treatment Systems can be applied adding color and chemical resistance to any solid concrete surface.

Green Umbrella Color Shield provides UV stable color and a glossy sheen, and can be used both inside and outside, beautifying concrete with or without diamond polishing. Green Umbrella Microfilm™ is an environmentally friendly hybrid surface treatment that creates a durable micro-thin layer to seal polished concrete. Properly applied, Green Umbrella RTU Microfilm forms a breathable, dense, protective layer which is highly resistant to aviation oils, stands up to acid and chemical exposure, and is not prone to whitening, peeling or flaking — with a beautiful high-gloss finish.

SYSTEMS SPECIFICATIONS

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

Green Umbrella Certification Levels

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

Equipment, Abrasives & Treatments

All Green Umbrella Engineered Polished Concrete Treatment Systems require the coupling of mechanical processes with chemical treatments.  Profiling, Honing and Polishing is best achieved using a wet process that couples a propane concrete grinder with the correct abrasive tool. 

Green Umbrella educates, trains and equips all Craftsman to be certified to ‘Craft Quality on-site’.

Why are we ‘systems based’? 

Treating concrete is not simply a matter of addressing a visible surface.  Lasting concrete refinement addresses both the wear surface as well as penetrating to sub-topical, even deep sub-surface realms of the architectural concrete. 

Implementing a family of concrete treatments ensures that the cutting agent, densifier, chloride screen, colorant, acid blocker and other contaminant resistant micro-film-forming treatments all work together for the life of the concrete surface.
