Cure & Profile System
“Making your Concrete Performance Ready”
Green Umbrella® GreenIce Cure & Profile™ System is primarily an interior @EarlyAge integral concrete cure. This starts part utilizes a cure IceStart™, during finishing and fixative, IceStop™. The GreenIce Cure & Profile™ System creates a highly consolidated and refined surface that is the basis for an unconventional floor at the same time it promotes best concrete practice, improving edges and ff/fl numbers. With a unique liquid abrasive cutting agent, GreenCut™ and the variety of GC abrasives line, BigStock™, GC-X™ Fusion™, Eraser™ and PolishPlus™ cover any class of profile including an unconventional highly reflective polish. Advancing construction staging allows mechanical profile, hone and polish to be performed days after placement, not months— with the use of a conventional grinder or a fitted finishing trowel. Combining the profile system of MaxDefense™: DryShield™, a densifier. Shield & Enhance™, a salt protection. Interior Microfilm™, a repairable wear-guard that brings the hardness, density, abrasion resistance, ultimate stain resistance in the industry. All while retaining the maximum amount of moisture within the concrete during curing for an unconventional architectural concrete floor that is truly performance-ready.
Why Green Umbrella GreenIce and Profile System?
GreenIce Cure System™, creates a concrete slab with a surface that looks like ice! The process begins with our two-part curing products IceStart and IceStop. These unique curing agents are specially designed to work with the concrete trowel to reduce or eliminate common problems flatwork finishers face.
With our third product, Green Umbrella RTU Microfilm, you can achieve the same slip-resistant ice-like, brilliant finish as would a Grind Hone and Polish floor specified for many big box stores and warehouses.
All of this is accomplished with less labor, less downtime and less environmental impact. The GreenIce Concrete Cure & Polish System gives concrete floors the look and clarity of a fresh sheet of ice over a concrete slab while being slip-resistant.

Green Umbrella GreenIce Systems
On any given slab you have several different options. This example illustrated is of a 20,000 square foot project.
One is traditional polished concrete. After the placement and finish, the contractor waits for the slab to cure before they can start the polishing process. A second option is the Green Umbrella Max Defense system. Using GreenCut, a cutting agent cuts days off the schedule. GreenICE Cure+Profile cuts weeks off the schedule. in 72 hours a floor is placed, finished and polished resulting in a floor of equal or superior quality.
