MaxDefense with Color For Mechanically
Processed/PHP Concrete Floors
Quick Drying / Highest Abrasion Resistance / Multi-Color Application
MaxDefense with Color
Reference – ASTM D-1308
Testing was completed on 1 cubic inch concrete samples that had been treated with a three-part protocol using DryShield, Shield & Enhance and Microfilm (or RTU Microfilm). Each cube was completely immersed in the respective chemicals for 48 hours. No visually perceptible changes occurred in any sample surface texture or appearance (color).
Chemical Resistance to:
0.1% weight gain
30wt Motor Oil
0.007% weight gain
Skydrol 500 B-4
0.05% weight gain
It’s easy to see the difference ! A system approach is a must. Treatments and Colorant must work together
It is not an easy thing to keep colorants close to the surface so they can be seen, but stay below the surface to not walk off. At the same time to keep the color from not falling too deep into the the concrete to keep it vibrant.
In the picture, down the hall you see a competitor’s floor that failed – the color “walked off” months after installation. Reportedly on the first day of school children had dye on the soles of their shoes.
In the foreground you see where the previous system was removed and Green Umbrella™ MaxDefense with Color was installed. The color is now locked in and still vibrant.
Return on Investmennt (ROI) for an architectural concrete floor requires: Densifier, Color Enhancement, Impregnating Stain Protectant. Without these your owner will not generate an acceptable ROI.
- Stain Resistance (Up to 48 Hours) 97% 97%
- Chloride Intrusion (Salt Resistance) 91% 91%
- Abrasion Resistance 100% 100%
