Cure Concrete Faster with Less Problems
The GreenIce Cure™ System, by GreenUmbrella®, is a complete concrete curing solution to help you, the contractor, to cut your labor, cut your downtime and cut your environmental impact. The process begins with our two-part curing products IceStart™ and IceStop™. These unique curing agents are specially designed to work with the concrete trowel to reduce or eliminate common problems flatwork finishers face. With the GreenIce Cure System, you can achieve the same brilliance as you would with a profiled, honed and polished floor specified for many box stores and warehouses.
Best of all, unlike traditional concrete curing methods, the entire curing process can be completed in just one day!
Economical Concrete Curing Treatment
Proper curing is a vital step when dealing with a concrete floor. Shortcutting the curing process will have a major impact on the quality of your finished work. An improperly or uncured slab is likely to develop cracks, imperfections and ultimately a substrate with low surface integrity that will be more prone to surface abrasion.
IceStart is the first part of the two-part GreenIce Cure 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.
Concrete Densifier to Increase Strength and Longevity
IceStop is the second part of the GreenIce Cure 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.
After the floor is properly cured, IceStop also increases the strength and longevity of the slab. The gloss reading averages in the 40’s. Stop here or top it off with IceCap to add a beautiful high-gloss finish, and achieve peak protection.
Optional GreenIce Products:
High Gloss Concrete Treatment
After the floor has been treated with IceStart and IceStop, IceCap™ may then applied to achieve the same brilliance as a traditional ground, honed and polished floor. In addition to the unparalleled high-gloss finish, IceCap adds additional UV protection and abrasion resistance to the floor.
Concrete Reinforcement Fibers
FiberLite™ is a uniquely designed concrete fiber that can be used as a powerful reinforcement. Unlike traditional polypropylene fibers, FiberLite fibers are fully-transparent in the mix and can be dyed and polished. FiberLite enhances durability and eliminates plastic shrinkage due to cracking up to 100%.
Simply the Best Concrete Cure System on the Market
Traditional Concrete Curing
Traditional curing methods require 28 days for the concrete slab to properly cure. This long wait time often delays construction projects and ties up work crews. Water must also be applied to prevent evaporation. Water evaporation during the curing process creates problems such cracking, flaking and curling on joints and edges. This is especially problematic in hot weather, requiring larger crews to work quickly.
GreenIce Cure System
The GreenIce Cure System cures the same day it’s placed – saving time and labor while stopping moisture deterioration issues. This results in a sustainable concrete finish superior to traditional methods. The GreenIce Cure System helps retain water in the concrete as it cures, resulting in the best looking finish. The work time is extended – even in hot weather, which allows for smaller crews and reduced labor costs.
