Sherwin-Williams FasTop 12S flooring

Sherwin-Williams has introduced FasTop 12S, a three-component water-based urethane concrete designed to provide flooring contractors with more working time.

The product offers easy handling and more time to coat concrete, wood and steel floors in food processing facilities, restaurants and commercial kitchens, and other constantly wet areas, the company says.
 
“FasTop 12S is truly the next generation of urethane concrete,” said Brad Rossetto, Vice President Marketing, Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings. “Our product developers outdid themselves in delivering a product that affords applicators the ease of more working time without compromising the FasTop line’s signature attribute of quick return to service.”
 
Self-leveling and 100% solids, FasTop 12S “offers USDA-inspected facilities the same attributes as other products in the FasTop line, including resistance to impact, thermal shock, chemicals, hot oils and steam cleaning,” Sherwin-Williams says.
 
Sherwin-Williams pioneered urethane concrete technology to protect the unique assets of the food and beverage market. Some resinous flooring can expand at 10 times the rate of concrete; if the system fails, it will result in blistering and disbondment. To minimize the detrimental effects of this, flooring systems should be at least ¼ inch thick. A urethane concrete flooring system with a coefficient of linear thermal expansion closer to that of the concrete will provide a life expectancy that far exceeds traditional epoxies in similar environments, Rossetto said. 
 
Sherwin-Williams’ FasTop Flooring Systems offer “seamless, low-odor and easy-to-clean coverage that is resistant to thermal shock, moisture and impact,” the company says. FasTop is engineered for installation within a matter of hours, quick return to service and long-term performance.

FasTop 12S joins a product line that is available via the coatings industry’s broadest distribution system and consists of FasTop S, FasTop M, FasTop S-U1, FasTop Cove Base, FasTop Plus, with AgION antimicrobial technology.
