Advice suggestions in epoxy concrete resurfacing?

Anyone have any advice / suggestions on concrete resurfacing?

I have a patio that is scaling and flaking. No cracks and otherwise pretty stable.
I need to find a solution that I can mix up, maybe tint, and spread over the surface after proper prep.

Patio is approx 16' x 28'.

I've seen Perma Patch, Renew-crete, EPO-toxy products.

Any other experiences guidance?

Thanks, Tony

Great question. I'm interested in this as well. Also, which products or applications offer better 'non-skid' properties and are easy on bare feet at the same time? Don't need any wipe-outs on rainy days.
Thanks!

Whenever you put something on a surface remember the life will depend on the base you are putting it on.

Make sure the base concrete is sound, all loose and cracked material is moved and concrete is not bruised. Bruised concrete has a layer of dusty partially crushed concrete that weakens the bond of the surfacing.

There are many materials and methods. Something too strong and impervious could be lifted off by moisture freezing below if you are in a cold climate.
