Max Defense CutSheet
Concrete Floor’s Best Game Plan

Green Umbrella® Max Defense™ system wins a high-performance architectural concrete floor with products designed to play well together. Created for owners and design professionals who have experienced the failure of products that do not team well. A system for the success of interior polished concrete @MatureAge™. Uses the GreenCut Abrasives™ system that includes the surface refinement cutting agent GreenCut®. Profile with a conventional grinder or a fitted finishing trowel to see unfair production rates compared to the competition. Process using selected GC abrasives—BigStock™, GC-X™, Fusion™, Eraser™, and PolishPlus™—to create a superior mechanical foundation defense with any specified class of profile or gloss. The Max Defense system first covers the field with DryShield™, our highly abrasion-resistant flagship densifier that fills the concrete void. Shield & Enhance™ is next in the lineup to protect from salt with superior stain protection. Bring a fantastic finish with Interior Microfilm™, a repairable wear-guard that brings clarity to the profile. Max Defense promotes bonding and cross-linking within the concrete without the negative side-effect of ASR or topical delamination found with other products. Maintain with GreenClean™ as part of the LifeCycle™ Maintenance system. All of this is “Concrete Floor’s Best Game Plan.”

Process, Equipment, & Abrasives

Green Umbrella equipment and abrasives are designed specifically for wet profiling. Equipped with a standard quick change system to promote even abrasive wear and quick field changes, cutting downtime on PHP projects.

The wet process eliminates airborne crystalline silica dust and its potential health hazards, such as silicosis due to inhaling these dangerous airborne particulates, and improves indoor air quality. Propane is one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels, cutting emissions and leaving a smaller carbon footprint than a typical electric model.

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. Optional.

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.

DryShield™ is a formulated concrete hardener and densifier that cuts environmental impact. Reaching deep into the subsurface, DryShield creates more than a conventional shell surface.

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-dyed lifecycle, extending colorfastness.

Interior MicroFilm™ is an R.T.U. repairable impregnating micro-treatment for abrasively profiled architectural concrete floors.

Cut your labor

An entire system designed to do more with less. Machines 40% more productive, a cutting agent that eliminates steps, and densifiers that are spray and go all add up to substantial labor savings.


Cut your Downtime

A system installed in days instead of weeks, weeks instead of months. Process and complete a polished floor without holding up a project.


Cut your environmental impact

Environmentally friendly treatments, water- and silica-based. Reduces construction waste with a finished product incorporated in the slab and is easy to maintain.
