"So we're always gunning the floor and check- ing our temperatures pretty much right up to when we're mixing material and installing it." Just Keep Trucking Each crew was made up of four members during the prep stage, and they beefed up to six members for the installation of the coatings. After blowing and vacuuming the concrete to clean off any excess shot or dust that might still remain, crew members donned their slip-on spike shoes and headed into the primer. e first layer, AC Tech 2170 FC, was a crucial one. It stands for A llied Construction Technologies' Fast Cure material, and it was squeegeed and back rolled at 110–120 square feet per gallon (2.7–2.9 m²/L). e primer comes in pre-packaged kits, it has a 15-year warranty, and it handles up to 100 percent relative Because the coatings were applied in the middle of winter and there was no heat, the crew used a coating system that would cure quickly even in less-than-optimal conditions, meaning below 60 degrees (15.6 °C). The crew taped off drive lines and cross hatching areas before rolling those stripes. After they cured, the crew pulled off tapes from those areas as well as edges and columns.
