What is white concrete?
White Concrete is concrete that is white, not grey. Beyond simply a change in color – White concrete is a premium material, specified in Architectural Concrete applications where appearance is a high priority. White concrete provides an aesthetic appeal, maximizing the powerful visuals of architectural concrete with strength and durability.
Architects are increasingly turning to white concrete in their designs thanks in large part to customizable color and design, a long life cycle, limited maintenance and high slip resistance standard to architectural concrete.
- Bright, Reflective Floors
- Unique integral color
- Drastically improve reflectivity
- Reduced light fixtures required
- Lowered utility costs
Cut Your Labor
Maintenance involves dramatically less labor. Stripping and waxing is completely eliminated. Only requiring sweeping, mopping and occasionally burnishing white concrete saves years of labor over the life of a floor.
Cut Your Downtime
No need to wait for the proper moisture conditions to install a coating or covering over the floor. The canvas was installed with the pour and finish and the polish can be done on an open slab or once the walls are up.
Cut Your Environmental Impact
White concrete is environmentally friendly with high ambient light reflection, reduced heating and cooling loads, and exceptional durability.
The Green Umbrella White Concrete System is more Versatile, Sustainable and Economical than traditional alternatives
Versatile: White concrete provides a neutral base for tinting and staining, allowing for a broad spectrum of colors from bright white to saturated colors. It opens the door for custom designs and patterns, such as seeded aggregate or other objects into the top, exposed layer of the concrete.
Sustainable: White concrete is environmentally friendly with high ambient light reflection, reduced heating and cooling loads, and exceptional durability.
Economical: Polished white concrete floors require less maintenance and prove themselves more durable with longer life cycles than traditional flooring choices such as marble, granite, tile and epoxy-coated concrete.
White Polished Concrete is LEED Certified:
Made from recycled materials
Releases minimal pollutants
Alternative to hazardous materials
Reduces heating and cooling costs
Reduces energy use by increasing ambient light
Green Umbrella Concrete treatments have zero or low VOC content and minimal impact on indoor air quality
