AMETEK SMP launches FASTAL: a tri-ply metal clad plate

Pennsylvania-based specialist roll-bonding clad plate manufacturer, AMETEK Specialty Metal Products (SMP), is strengthening its position in the food service equipment market with the introduction of FASTAL – it’s premium quality, three-layered clad metal plate product. 
Designed for high performance commercial and residential griddles, the product offers excellent thermal conductivity and heat distribution properties. With faster heating times and a strong resilience to frequent temperature changes, it is the ideal material for electric or gas cooking surfaces.
FASTAL consists of three layers for optimal performance: stainless steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. The extremely durable stainless steel cooking surface is easy to clean and reduces sticking and flavor transfer. Aluminum has a heat transfer rate five times that of carbon steel, facilitating an even temperature distribution over the entire plate surface regardless of the heat source.
The FASTAL name reflects the three-layer clad plate’s core benefits and contents. “FASTâ€? focuses the mind on the product’s ability to rapidly respond to temperature changes cycling up and down as the griddle is used, while “STâ€? pays tribute to the “stainless steelâ€? content and “ALâ€? is taken from the aluminum core.
