Green Umbrella® GreenIce Cure & Profile™ system is primarily an interior @EarlyAge™ integral concrete cure. It starts with the use of IceStart™ concrete cure during finishing. Once finished, the fixative IceStop™ is applied. GreenIce Cure™ creates a highly consolidated and refined surface that is the basis for an unconventional floor and promotes the best concrete practices, improving edges and FF/FL numbers. With GreenCut™, a unique liquid abrasive cutting agent, and various GC abrasives—GC-BigStock™, GC-X™, GC-Fusion™, GC-Eraser™, and GC-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—using a conventional grinder or a fitted finishing trowel. Combines the profile system Max Defense™, the densifier DryShield™, the salt protection Shield & Enhance™, and the repairable wear-guard Interior Microfilm™ to provide the ultimate hardness, density, abrasion resistance, and stain resistance in the industry while retaining the maximum moisture within the concrete during curing for an unconventional architectural concrete floor that is performance ready.

THE GREENICE CURE & profile SYSTEM
GreenIce Cure & Profile™ system creates a concrete slab with a surface that looks like ice! The process begins with our two-part curing treatments IceStart™ and IceStop™. These unique curing agents are designed to work with the concrete trowel to reduce or eliminate common problems flatwork finishers face.
With our third product, Interior MicroFilm™, you can achieve the same slip-resistant, ice-like, brilliant finish as a profiled, honed, and polished floor specified for many big box stores and warehouses.
This is all accomplished with less labor, less downtime, and less environmental impact. The GreenIce Cure & Polish system gives concrete floors the look and clarity of a fresh sheet of ice over a concrete slab while being slip-resistant.
IceStart™ is a unique curing agent used to ensure an adequately cured floor and is the first of the two-part GreenIce Cure™ system. It uses a treatment and trowel process to achieve high-performance floors.
IceStop™ is the second part of the GreenIce Cure™ system. IceStop is applied after IceStart™ to create a protected and properly cured concrete slab. After the floor is properly cured, IceStop increases the strength and longevity of the slab.
GreenCut® starts by creating a slurry that produces a denser surface, reducing seven abrasive cuts to as few as two.
GC-BigStock™ abrasives can be used for increased aggregate exposure. Ideal for architectural concrete featuring a large aggregate reveal. Optional
GC-X™ abrasives are powerful 10-segment metal abrasives designed for use with Green Umbrella® GreenCut®. Optional
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 GC-Eraser™ class of semi-metal honing abrasives is engineered for specific surface refinement.
Designed for use within Green Umbrella® Base Defense™, Max Defense™, and other profile systems, our GC-PolishPlus™ abrasives finish off the process to achieve the desired surface sheen.
GreenUmbrella® NanoDye™ concrete colorant is an interior, translucent, subsurface, pH-neutral dye that utilizes nano-sized particulates to penetrate the concrete, depositing colorant into the concrete subsurface and promoting a longer lifecycle.
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 color-guard 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 lifecycle, extending colorfastness.
Concrete canvas systems use fewer products to achieve a superior result.
