Green Umbrella IceStart
The industries first day of placement, integrally troweled, cure. Unique moisture retention and surface protection starting on day 1 of construction.
GreenIce Concrete Cure
Green Umbrella IceStart Concrete Cure
IceStart is a unique curing agent used to ensure a properly cured floor. IceStart is applied over the concrete during the troweling process. Designed to ease finishing by reducing drag on concrete, reducing subsurface lateral micro-cracks, mud cracks, cat faces and shrinkage cracks.
IceStart provides a set time that is retarded in hot weather, without extending the set time in cold weather. IceStart eliminates false set.
Dry shake will finish as if on normal concrete. Control joints will have a sharper cut that will be shallower.
Cut Your Labor
Achieve the properties of a polished concrete floor using normal pour and finish practice, with no additional labor.
Cut Your Downtime
Applied on pour day, eliminating the need to introduce dissipating products or return to densify.
Cut Your Environmental Impact
Eliminates the need to introduce several concrete treatments that will dissipate or be ground off later. Water based and environmentally friendly.

Part of the GreenIce Cure System
IceStart creates a durable concrete floor with moderate gloss/shine.
The 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 any concrete power trowel to reduce or eliminate common problems flatwork finishers face.
Introduce IceCap and you can achieve the same brilliance as would a Profile, Hone and Polish floor – specified in many box stores and warehouses.
IceStart gives the look and clarity of a fresh sheet of ice over a concrete slab, while being slip resistant. This is accomplished with less labor, less downtime and less environmental impact.
The GreenIce Cure System creates a properly cured, protected concrete floor with a tight finish, and moderate gloss.
