Skim coat garage slab

My garage slab was damaged in a fire. Several cracks and a dozen or more dinner plate sized craters. The slab has been cleaned and the cracks widened and excavated.

My contract says that there would be a 4" over pour on top of the damaged slab. After discussing it with the GC we agreed on a 2" topping mix as the repair. Today the concrete guys showed up and I went out to see the work. Imagine my surprise when I found out they were doing a skim coat using an "acrylic "resurfacer."
The guy doing the work said "your getting a beautiful garage floor." I said I'm getting something that will be a mess within a year.

Is anyone familiar with this resurfacing process? I paid $5000 in the contract to repair the slab and I feel that I'm getting ripped off - again.

I guess I have my answer about the slab resurfacing. The skim coated slab was painted last week and two days ago some kind of clear seal coat was applied. Today I walked into the garage for the first time since the repairs. The seal coat has bubbled up in a large portion of the slab. It looks like the floor has chicken pox. Walking on it is like walking on bubble wrap. Anyone have an idea about how this happened and what the fix might be? I would like to be a little smarter about it before I call the GC.
