FasTop® Multi Cove Base
A urethane concrete system designed as an integral part of the floor system.
FasTop Multi Cove Base is ideal for use in areas subject to extremely heavy mechanical or high chemical charges or hygienic demands, such as food and beverage manufacturing and process areas, commercial and institutional kitchens, dairies and breweries - and generally in the food industry, where steam cleaning is required. The urethane concrete cove base enables a smooth transition to be made from floor to wall with a permanent finish that can be cleaned and will not harbor dirt and bacterial growth. FasTop Cove Base resin coving cures to a much harder finish than concrete and provides a smooth finish for a long-term solution that resists hot water and impact.

GFX: At Widmer Brother Brewing Sherwin Williams Portland, Oregon Corey Omey: For the last about 10 years now, we've been specifying FasTop. It's a Sherwin-Williams product. They consistently have good representation of the product. GFX: Corey Omey Architect EMA Architecture They're able to help early on in the project helps specify the appropriate system for the job and they turn out well. GFX: Scott Kaiser Senior Flooring Specialist Sherwin-Williams Scott Kaiser: The FasTop product in food and beverage and specifically a brewery is an ideal material it's a water-based urethane cement. It solves a lot of problems for both the installer and the end user. Mike Klein: We want to be able to go into a project and tell the customer this is what you're gonna get. GFX: Mike Klein Cascade Floors Inc.: This is how it's going to perform and five years from now basically be able to say hey you know I'm really glad you're happy with that floor and have the customer tell us hey man this stuff's great it's you know bullet proof for whatever you want to say. We get that all the time. I'm Dustin from Widmer. I'm a senior project engineer here. And we're just finishing a two year expansion of the brewery. Downtime is money. So we need something that's fast Return-to-service. Corey: One of the things that is a really great advantage in the FasTop is that it can be returned service nearly immediately it's like 24 hours or something. It can go down on damp concrete. If it's a remodel we're not waiting for things to dry out. If the concrete is cured quick enough which usually is seven days you can do your moisture test to make sure you can put the FasTop system down right away and it's ready the next day. It's pretty amazing. Dustin: We think it's important to have clean safe floors in a brewery. The safety aspect of these floors is they have a good high grip surface. They're easily clean able for hygienic reasons. They look really nice and they also help the concrete of the floors hold up for years. Corey: I think Sherwin-Williams products are best for the brewing industry because they're durable. They're cost effective go down quickly. And they look good. Mike: I think the bottom line is the quality of the product and also the service that they give you. Scott: We're happy to provide a great product to install our cascade floors. That floor, we should see it for decades Widmer.
