Sherwin-Williams FasTop™ pouch packaging helps food and beverage facilities accelerate flooring protection


Sherwin-Williams is expanding its industry-leading FasTop™ high performance flooring range and launching new multi-component pouch packaging.

Available for purchase beginning March 2 in Europe and the Middle East, the new FasTop Multi Systems four-pack format provides customers with the desired colour, universal base and hardener supplied in pouches to go with the appropriate aggregate filler, facilitating quicker and easier installation with reduced waste. The FasTop™ systems portfolio has been extended with the new FasTop DP uniform textured system, FasTop Terrazzo decorative screed, FasTop WR coving and FasTop Primer, which all utilise the new pouch packaging.

With industry-leading technical properties, the FasTop range delivers significant time-saving benefits for customers. It can be installed with a single application and takes just a few hours to cure and deliver a highly durable hygienic floor finish for industrial environments.

Jeremy Waterhouse, Flooring Product Manager at Sherwin-Williams, commented, “FasTop systems are HACCP-accredited and have a great track record as food factory flooring solutions. The innovative new pouch packaging and extended range deliver major time and cost-saving advantages. This includes quicker installation times and reduced waste for projects in the food and beverage sector and other industrial areas.”

The FasTop four-pack system also ensures long-term floor protection and reduced costs through the use of innovative cementitious polyurethane resin technology. With improved compact packaging, customers benefit from reduced product and packaging waste, and a cleaner job site with much smaller space needed to store the solution.  

The quick-curing FasTop range is accredited as food safe by The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) agency and is ideal for use in food processing areas and commercial kitchens, as well as industrial heavy-duty traffic areas and chemical and pharmaceutical processing plants.
