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.
