THE INDUSTRY’S FIRST CROSSOVER DENSIFIER  

“FILLING THE VOIDS”

Green Umbrella® 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. The unique formulation is insoluble, fully reactive, and pH neutral—resulting in a bond within the concrete that is harder, denser, and less porous while allowing maximum penetration of concrete colorants. A breathable, transparent, odorless solution with a natural appearance that is specially formulated to be a CrossOver™ densifier, designed for application @EarlyAge™, @Profile&Polish™, or @MatureAge™ concrete. Unlike conventional hardeners, DryShield is a single application S.O.L.O™ treatment that requires no scrubbing or mopping and is packaged R.T.U.™ It does not require a pH balance of wastewater if rinsed. DryShield produces a substrate that will stain less and wear longer, reducing maintenance frequency and extending the concrete’s life cycle. Use of Green Umbrella Treatments saves considerable time and expense while eliminating hazardous waste disposal requirements, significantly cutting the environmental impact.

OUR MISSION

“You Can’t Stop the Rain, But You Can Stay Under a Good Umbrella”

ARCHITECTURAL CONCRETE – SYSTEM SOLUTION – UNDER ONE GREEN UMBRELLA

“Our MISSION at Green Umbrella is to bring to the concrete market innovative products combined with a consultative approach that resolves common problems; prevent future issues, and create solutions for architectural concrete. We accomplish all of this with an environmentally conscious systems solution, consistently found under one Green Umbrella.“

VERSATILE ARCHITECTURAL APPLICATIONS

Ideal for interior or exterior, vertical or horizontal in Demanding Applications; warehouse/distribution centers, food service, parking decks, garages, hospitals, or similar & specifically for nano dye and pigment Decorative Color Applications; retail spaces & showrooms, restaurants, business offices, lobby areas, museums, municipalities, airports, hospitals, schools, fire-stations, or most concrete surfaces.

Deep SubSurface

PH NEUTRAL DENSIFIER

HIGHLY ABRASION RESISTANT

DryShield’s Primary Feature: Insolubility

Green Umbrella DryShield is Insoluble. Once DryShield has reacted within the concrete – it will not come out.

CUT YOUR DAYS IN DOWNTIME

Green Umbrella DryShield

May be applied the day of the pour with no adverse effects

Conventional Concrete Desifier

Wait 28 days after pour for proper concrete reaction

CUT YOUR PRODUCT USAGE

Product application is formulated for open concrete to have 400-500 square feet per gallon. With the use of a cutting agent, Green Umbrella GreenCut™, the product requirement usage increases to 600 square feet per gallon. Conventional concrete hardeners are applied at 150 square feet per gallon with some formulations being 300. Green Umbrella DryShield is S.O.L.O. (Spray-On, Leave-On) with only one application, unlike the common hardeners.
