JC Cleanroom Compliance- Paints (Epoxy)

A bit of an odd question for this forum but thought I'd give it a shot.

We were cited in our "JC Mock" for a small area in our ante room where the cart rubs against the wall and started to wear away some of the paint. We decided to get the room repainted and sought out "epoxy coated" paint. We ran into 2 issues:

1. Supply chain issue with acquisition
2. The product we found has a fairly long cure time taking our IV room down for 8 days. (Yikes- our largest IV room area).

Since the cure time can be brand/specific although all of them will take "days", has anyone had the need to acquire this within the last 6 months for IV Room Compliance or a new build? If so were you able to find a product with a shorter cure time?

If yes, would you mind sharing the name and brand.

Thanks!
