I believe that Lasco makes a repair kit for bathtubs. In addition, I think I saw an acrylic bathtub and shower repair kit at Home Depot or Lowes (dont remember the manufacturer though).

Your best bet may be to contact the manufacturer of your tub and ask if they have a repair kit. If so, their colors should match your tub pretty well.

If the chip is only in the acrylic layer, you should be fine, but you want to prevent water from getting underneath the acrylic layer. Various repair kits do exist, or you could pay for a professional repair for around $150 (Northeast US). Professionally done, you would be hardpressed to find the repaired spot.

Good luck,
