Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to use all three products?2016-08-05T14:53:20+00:00

The GreenIce Cure System is a two-part process that requires both, IceStart and IceStop to be used together. IceCap is an optional product that can be used to add a higher gloss to the finish. The default gloss reading averages in the 40’s after IceStop is applied. Gloss readings between 60-80 are achievable with the addition of IceCap.

How are the products applied?2016-08-05T14:54:37+00:00

IceStart

IceStart is applied at the time of pour. It can be applied through the sprayer of a power trowel or sprayed from a high-volume, low-pressure sprayer at a rate of 1,200 sq. ft. per gallon. IceStart MUST be used in conjunction with either walk-behind or ride-on trowels. IceStart gets applied during each subsequent panning cycle, for a total of three applications.

IceStop

After using IceStart, apply IceStop as soon as the trowels are finished. IceStop is applied using garden sprayers or high-volume, low-pressure sprayers at a rate of 400 sq. ft. per gallon. After IceStop has completely dried, gently scrub surface and use minimal water rinse and and wet vacuum floor if necessary.

IceCap

After IceStop has been applied and the surface has been cleaned, simply spray IceCap and disperse with a T-bar. Burnish with a Green Umbrella-recommended high-speed burnisher to produce gloss readings unreachable by other processes.
