Paul, that looks great. I do plan on doing services within the garage which means at some point I will drop oil / brake fluid / et cetera on the garage floor. And if that surface makes it easier to clean off that would be great
It has worn away a little where the tyres go, but apart from that, it makes it so much easier to sweep the garage floor and you don't get the concrete dust through your house as it's our main entrance for the family is from garage to house.
This is only a paint and will come off in places. If you want a really professional look that will last and last, then I'd get an epoxy put on it.

The best kind of coverings are 2 part Epoxy, they will last the longest and are the most durable. I spent about $900 for Sikafloor HS High Solids Epoxy Coating for a 60 sq metre garage. The best $900 I ever spent on a coating, my wife even loves it:):)
Any one with experience with Cementaid? I'm am looking at applying diamite + rokite in the garage. Its aparently is a pentrating type concrete hardener and sealer respectively. Might be overkill but like the idea of toughening up the concrete surface by filling pores as opposed to coating it (I'm a grease monkey who likes to weld, hammer, drag engines across my floor).

Any form of densifying the concrete will make it harder. Less subject to 'damage'... though fillers are not normally considered densifying. Densifiers normally would ingress the concrete substrate and capillary fill and with a chemical change and 'harden' the substrate. Thanks for the heads up theanonyuser .
It's purpose made for garages and can handle all the water and oil spills etc that occur in a garage. It floats over the concrete and can go straight over the expansion gaps in the concrete. It comes in around 30 or so colours including steel, stones and woods.
