Shield & Protect Concrete Densifier
“RESISTING SALT & WATER”
Green Umbrella® Shield & Protect™ is a premium environmentally formulated industrial grade densifier that deeply penetrates and
reacts with the concrete preventing concrete off-dusting and creating a surface that is harder and less porous. Providing exceptional shielding from the damaging effects of water and salt, with a chloride prevention of over ninety-percent. From snowy parking decks to beach exposed architecture, Shield & Protect screens concrete against deicers, saltwater, and is the hardener of choice in freeze-thaw environments. There is also significant abrasion resistance increase over untreated concrete. Shield & Protect darkens open concrete slightly, and on burnished, troweled concrete can have a clarified-gloss. It’s an odorless, water-based solution that is non-carcinogenic and yet more effective than alternatives. Shield & Protect takes only one S.O.L.O™ application and is packaged R.T.U., resists salt and water for sustainable concrete.
VERSATILE ARCHITECTURAL APPLICATIONS
Ideal for interior or exterior, vertical or horizontal in Demanding Applications; warehouse/distribution centers, food service, parking decks, garages, hospitals, or similar & specifically for dye and pigment Decorative Color Applications; retail spaces & showrooms, restaurants, business offices, lobby areas, museums, municipalities, airports, hospitals, schools, fire-stations, or most concrete surfaces.
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.
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.
