Poured/seamless flooring?

Doing a renovation, and had planned on a commercial grade vinyl tile for the kitchen area.

There is a local outfit I found in the yellow pages, that does a poured/seamless floorcovering what has the same look as vinyl. The system involves a polyeurethane/epoxy base, onto which color vinyl chips are broadcast, and then three, I believe, coats of a poly sealer. It sounds good, but does it really hold up?
I should note that the floor now is 3/4 inch tongue and groove, on 2X2 sleepers sixteen inches OC, on 3/4 inch diagonal planks(second floor, so I'm guessing this was for noise reduction, as this used to be a two-flat).

Would appreciate any comments, pro or con, as I am unfamiliar with this system.

It's called Torginal.

Was very popular in the 60's

I was in a home last year that was built in 1963, and still had the original torginal flooring in the kitchen and dining room.
