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 – its 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.
AMETEK SMP employs a well-established roll bonding process to achieve a high metallurgical bond strength and can supply the premium product in custom sizes, small batch sizes, and short lead times. This roll-bonded clad plate can be cut to custom sizes easily to match precise griddle manufacturersâ specifications, while maintaining bond integrity and performance.
The FASTAL name reflects the three-layer clad plateâs core benefits and contents. âFASTâ? focuses the mind on the productâs ability to rapidly respond to temperature changes cycling up and down as the griddle is used, while âSTâ? pays tribute to the âstainless steelâ? content and âALâ? is taken from the aluminum core.
