Chip Systems - Ultra Examples of chip systems include our Deluxe, Premium and Ultra coating systems. For these systems, a standard or moisture-mitigating epoxy primer coat is applied followed by up to two color coats. Thermoplastic chips are then broadcast into the final color coat in a medium spread (Deluxe), heavy spread (Premium) or “full chip” spread (Ultra). To finish, no clear coat (Deluxe), a single clear coat (Premium) or two clear coats (Ultra) are applied.

Chip Systems – Color, Contrast, Texture and Durability Chip systems are a high-quality, high-durability series of coating systems. Into each system, we broadcast a thermoplastic “chip” (called polyvinyl acetate or PVA for short) into the final color coat to provide color, contrast, and texture. Our Deluxe, Premium and Ultra, each available in a variety of colors and styles, are examples of chip systems. Chip Systems provide uniquely textured and visually stunning flooring. But aside from the added color, contrast and texture, chipped systems add thickness to the flooring. A “partially” chipped floor provides 15 to 18 “mils” of thickness, while our full-chip Ultra system provides up to 30 mils of thickness (a mil equals 1/1000 of an inch). Because of this, chip systems make for extremely durable and long-life flooring. Why choose a Chip System? Like all of our coating systems, chip systems provide customers with all the necessary dimensions of quality...performance, reliability, durability, serviceability, and of course, aesthetics. We use industrial-grade, eco-friendly, low-VOC products that, once applied, strongly resist staining and abrasions. Your new flooring is easy to maintain and will last years and years without the need for re-touching. As a customer, you can derive great comfort in the fact that our installers are highly trained in the art and science of application. With our experience and know-how in coating systems installation, our company has developed subject matter expertise far beyond that of our competitors.
