Sealer recommendation

I've got a three year old concrete patio that I had acid washed. I love the finish when it's cleaned however, it is a dust magnet. A local concrete finisher recommended putting a couple of coats of sealer to fill in the dust collecting cavities. I did have a single coat of sealer installed when the original acid stain was done.

What's a good recommendation for the type of sealer to use. I've read that Polyurethanes are best durability and go on about twice as thick as acrylic sealers. Since I'm looking to build up a good surface and avoid the dirt build up, is this a good way to go?

Also, any other concerns I should make sure I take care of?

Thanks

You should use the same type of sealer you used the first time, unless you want to strip everything off and start from scratch. Some types of sealers are not compatible with others and they won't stick to each other.
