Garage Floor Pitting

My 2 car garage floor is heavily pitted likely due to 35 years of road salt and water. Id like to seal it without making a huge project. Someone had recommending grinding it smooth, then coating with epoxy but again Im looking for a quick fix. Ive seen this product advertised: EpoxyShield Concrete Resurfacer by Rust-Oleum. Anyone have experience with this, or other suggestions?

By quick fix, do you mean a cheap fix? Most times, they aren't one in the same. I was watching some guys prepare a concrete floor in a store front, yesterday. They were using a fairly new procedure which I had never seen before. They said that the floor will look like glass when they finished. I doubt that the job is cheap.

Not necessarily cheap. Been doing more research. I don't think I can do much until I correct the pitting. I'll need to grind at least a portion of the floor. Then I can consider recoating with a sealer or epoxy.

What procedure were they using?

I never really heard what it was called but they had a lot of small diamond grinding discs & a large plastic pump spray tank that was worn on his back. There was a second pump tank that stood on the floor. The first tank spayed some quick drying brown stuff & the second tank sprayed a very shiny liquid which was immediately spread with what looked like a swiffer. I was told that they had to buff the shiny stuff 4 or 5 times with very course to very fine paper.
