I need help in deciding which shop floor coating to use. Or even perhaps acid staining?

I have new concrete...about 4000 sq/ft...machine shop.

What do you think? Anyone with good experience with their floor and application to share?

Thanks guys.

Many years ago (I'm old) we coated the shop floor with a "plastic" type of sealer. Very DANGEROUS with coolant or oil on it.

We had to apply a second sealer with grit in it to avoid slipping and sliding.

Since then I've used a penetrating sealer that did not stay on the surface. This can still cause slippery conditions if coolant etc. is allowed to remain on the surface.
