“Making the Complex … Simple.”

Concrete polishing in it’s most basic form includes mechanical refinement; a densified, dust-proofed and abrasion resistant surface; and subtopical and surface protection.

Green Umbrella Base Defense uses GreenCut to produce surface refinement; DryShield to create the highest abrasion resistance and MicroFilm for subtopical and surface contaminant resistance and protection. 

Before climbing mount Everest the team must start at base camp.  Concrete polishing can feel like climbing a mountain.  Green Umbrella Base Defense is the starting point of successful polished concrete and will consistently leave you on top of the polishing world.

Concrete polishing is more than creating a shiny, reflective architectural concrete surface.  Go beyond basic mechanical refinement with the best system in the industry for architectural polished concrete – Green Umbrella Max Defense.

Max Defense uses GreenCut to produce surface refinement; DryShield to create the highest abrasion resistance, Shield & Enhance to resist 91% of chloride and MicroFilm for subtopical and surface contaminant resistance and protection. 

Max Defense uses a family of treatments to fill the voids in concrete, eliminating porosity and creating a dense, consolidated surface that is extremely well protected.  If protecting your investment in polished concrete is important to you – specify Max Defense on new or existing concrete.

GREEN UMBRELLA: PROFILE, HONE, POLISH TREATMENT SYSTEMS WITH COLOR:

The benefits of Base Defense – a refined surface, densified, dust-proofed and protected with color added during the process. 

Introduce Green Umbrella ColorFlash or Nano colorant into the surface and expand the design and appeal of architectural, polished concrete.

 

The benefits of Max Defense – a refined surface, densified, dust-proofed and extremly well protected against salts, acids or other contaminants with color added during the process.

Introduce Green Umbrella ColorFlash or Nano colorant into the surface and expand the design and appeal of architectural, polished concrete.

A unique, hybrid system that couples surface refinement with color and protection using a single product: Green Umbrella ColorShield.

Create a honed concrete surface and build protection and color by applying multiple applications of ColorShield.  Featuring a unique repairability, UV stable color options and concrete protection – all in one. 

Color Fusion can be a matte finish or medium gloss, but will not be high gloss.

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.
