A Systems Approach for Architectural Concrete

Creating a concrete surface which can retain its beauty in high traffic environments and temperature variations can be demanding and filled with challenges.  Green Umbrella has refined a Systems approach when it comes to concrete production to empower design professionals to extend the design potential of architectural concrete to a growing range of environments.

New Concrete

GreenIce Cure

The GreenIce Cure System is a two-part patent-protected concrete curing solution designed for short cure times, increased abrasion resistance and adding a high gloss finish that looks like ice!

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 Cure & Cap

GreenIce Cure & Cap brings together the best of durability and beauty. After the floor has been treated with IceStart and IceStop, IceCap may then applied to achieve the same brilliance as a traditional ground, honed and polished floor. In addition to the unparalleled high-gloss finish, IceCap adds additional UV protection and abrasion resistance to the floor.

Base Defense

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.

Max Defense

Concrete Treatments that complement one another; coupled with the proper mechanically ground, honed, and polished floor can create a winning combination for your polished concrete needs. MaxDefense includes the following;

  • Green Umbrella Dry Shield™ has one of the highest abrasion resistance levels on the market.
  • Green Umbrella Shield & Enhance™ has a superior chloride screen
  • Green Umbrella Microfilm™ offers a repairable surface layer making Green Umbrella Max Defense Treatment System™ a team that has you covered.

Colorants

Color Fusion

Green Umbrella ColorFusion Treatment Systems is comprised of products which will create 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.
