CHIP-FLAKE SYSTEMS:

Garage Floor Chip-Flake Systems by UDT have been proven to perform on thousands of garage floors across the USA. Our Chip-Flake systems are simple, repeatable, and proven solutions to the abuse inherently found in garage environments, even in the Northern United States and Canada where extreme environmental and temperature fluctuations cause problems for most coatings systems.

The UltraMax and UltraSpartic clear top coats are resistant to chemicals, tire stains, salts, and wear-through commonly found in several DIY and lower-quality systems. Follow the UDT preparation and application procedures and you will get an effective, attractive and durable floor that will be the envy of your neighborhood!

UDT Fast Flake

UDT Fast Flake systems are formulated to provide the fastest return-to-service rates available. UltraSpartic dries in 2-3 hours for light foot traffic. UDT Fast Flake systems are comparable in speed and durability to polyurea systems and provide the “1-day Garage Floors” for contractors that require the speed along with additional labor and travel savings.

* Primer coats help minimize off-gassing/bubbles due to existing pits and porous concrete conditions. Primer coats also aid in filling and smoothing out small cracks and pitted concrete. Use UDT Patch Additive for more severe pitting and cracks.

UDT Easy Flake

UDT Easy Flake systems are formulated as the name suggests; easy to apply. UltraMax provides a 30-minute open working time and 2-hour pot-life once mixed. UM Ultra Grip #1 or #2 grit additives are mixed into the protective topcoat eliminating the need for tricky broadcasting processes. The addition of UM Ultra Grip simultaneously increases scratch, traction and abrasion resistance. Just because we made it easy to apply does not mean that the performance is less than optimal. The UDT Easy Flake system is the most durable and chemical-resistant flake system on the market!
