The Green Ice Cure System is a two-part patent-protected concrete curing solution designed to cure concrete faster, increase abrasion resistance and add a high gloss finish that looks like ice.
IceStart™ is the first part of the two-part GreenIce Curing System™. IceStart™ is a unique curing agent designed to retain the water in the concrete, ensuring a properly cured and protected floor. IceStart™ is applied over the concrete during the troweling process.
IceStop™ is the second part of the GreenIce Curing System™. IceStop™ is applied after IceStart™ to create a protected and properly cured concrete slab. With specially designed hydrophobic properties, this product acts as a fixative while repelling water and adds abrasion resistance while repelling water.
During construction, wet cut processes control the Indoor Air Quality, therefore leading to the construction having the longest life-cycle, compared to other floors.
Not only do architectural polished concrete floors have a lower initial cost, but they also require less maintenance, due to their durability. Architectural concrete floors last longer than traditional floors such as marble, tile, and carpet.
Due to the processed and and dense surface of architectural concrete, it reflects ambient light. Not only does this give rooms more light, but it also lowers lighting costs.
Concrete construction may release chemicals into the air, which is harmful to both people and the environment. Green Umbrella uses low VOC concrete treatments for a safe and healthy concrete implementation process.
Architectural Concrete is a versatile product with multiple options for the concrete texture, thickness, material, and color.
Architectural concrete increases productivity and decreases the loss of money due to its reduction of construction downtime.
The GreenIce Cure & Cap System is a high-performance Concrete cure that is beneficial for the densification and curing of concrete, helps to sustain concrete during its construction, and ends with a non-abrasive polished concrete appearance.
The first step of GreenIce is Icestart, which is a curing agent used to reduce subsurface lateral micro-cracks, mud & shrinkage cracks, and cat faces. GreenIce makes it easier & quicker to finish concrete in either hot or cold weather, and to maneuver control joints, which will have sharper and more shallow cuts. And, if IceStart is used on dry shake, it will finish as conventional concrete.
The Second Step of GreenIce is IceStop, a fixative that that creates a protective slab whilst curing that protects the concrete during construction. IceStop produces a strong concrete with increased longevity, that also repels water, and will densify concrete and add abrasion resistance.
Not only does GreenIce create an easy, strong, and polished concrete, but it also cuts down on unnecessary losses that usually dominate the concrete process. It cuts down on labor because of its uncomplicated process that increases quick finish ability. GreenIce cuts down on downtime because there is no wait for a liquid hardener and the process is done in a few days. And, it cuts down on environmental impact by its long life-cycle, reduction of off-gassing, and refined surface that decreases the need for lighting.
