Green Umbrella Shield & Enhance

Resisting salts and Transforming color





Shield & Enhance Protects  and Enhances colored Concrete



Green Umbrella Shield & Enhance

Green Umbrella™ Shield & Enhance is an environmentally friendly densifier that deeply penetrates and chemically reacts with concrete to create a dust-proof concrete surface that is harder, denser and exceptionally resistant to the damaging effects of water and salt with up to 91% chloride prevention – exceeding NCHRP-244 protection.  As a part of the MaxDefense System it provides ASTM-1308 protection against contaminants like aviation fluid.

Green Umbrella™ Shield & Enhance is specially engineered to enhance the natural beauty of architectural concrete – especially polished and dyed or stained concrete as it provides a deeper and richer appearance to color treated surfaces.

A clear, odorless solution, Green Umbrella™ Shield & Enhance does not require rinsing or removal, eliminating hazardous waste disposal issues – significantly reducing impact on the environment.  The easy to apply formulation enables contractors to save considerable time and resources while providing architectural concrete with the best protection against salts.

A Shield Defending Your Investment

Green Umbrella™ Shield & Enhance is exceptionally resistant to the damaging effects of salt (chloride) with up to 91% concrete prevention – exceeding NCHRP-244 protection standard requirements.  Damage from salt on concrete surfaces requires billions of dollars each year to repair, replace or refurbish.  Green Umbrella Shield & Enhance protects your investment and works to deny salt entry into concrete capillaries, protecting against surface and subsurface damage. 

Solid Salt Resistance

Shield Concrete Color & Repel Contaminants 

Shield & Enhance utilizes advanced concrete treatment technology that couples a modern lithium densifier with a chemical formulation designed to resist salts and other contaminants from penetrating the concrete surface and doing lasting harm to the architectural concrete subsurface. 

Within the Green Umbrella MaxDefense System, Shield & Enhance provides ASTM-1308 protection against both concrete and ground water contaminants such as aviation fluid.  The use of Shield & Enhance on architectural concrete floors receiving color enhancement will ensure the colorant will remain within the surface and not exit the concrete.  Using Shield & Enhance will protect what you have invested in and expect from your concrete – a durable, aesthetic surface, impervious to nature.

Powerful Shop Protectant

Enhancement That Enriches

Transform any concrete color treatment – both topical and integral – into a deep, vibrant and rich color by applying Shield & Enhance after color application.  Shield & Enhance will darken the colorant or natural concrete substrate giving an appearance that presents more depth and a richer, refined look.

When used within a Profile, Hone & Polish system it is recommended that the application of Shield & Enhance be followed with the use of a GC Polish Plus+ abrasive by Green Umbrella

Enhances the Look of Colored Concrete


Green Umbrella™ Shield & Enhance can be use in manufacturing & light assembly plants, warehouse/distribution centers, food service operations, retail stores & showrooms, parking decks, garages, airports, hospitals and any other areas where concrete surfaces are maintained. It can be used for indoor or outdoor concrete.
