For the first time, Sherwin-Williams’ signature coating system for USDA-inspected food and beverage facilities, FasTop, includes a topcoat with uniform chemistry and performance. General Polymers’ FasTop 12 TC joins a product line that is available via the coatings industry’s broadest distribution system and consists of FasTop 12S, FasTop S, FasTop M, FasTop S-U1, FasTop Cove Base and FasTop Plus with AgION antimicrobial technology.
“With FasTop 12 TC, we offer a complete FasTop solution for food and beverage facilities that withstands abrasion at four to five times the norm,” said Narsi Bodapati, vice president marketing, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings. “Because FasTop 12 TC only needs six hours to allow light foot traffic and 12 hours for full return to service, facilities will realize meaningful reductions in downtime compared to the typical epoxy or urethane top coatings used in these applications. This cuts downtime in half, if not more, compared to other standard top coatings.”
FasTop 12 TC can be applied to concrete and steel floors in food processing facilities, restaurants and commercial kitchens, and other constantly wet areas.
