Cracks in concrete


I have a 40'x60' shop with a 4" thick concrete floor. There are numerous cracks in it. Is there any products out there where I could coat this floor to fill the cracks and level it and it would hold up and last a while?

how wide and deep are cracks?
Are the sides of the cracks on the same plane?

The cracks aren't wide at all so no way to know depth. Just so many. It's cracked everywhere. It is level.

If they "aren't wide at all", why do they need filling?
Perhaps a picture would help?
How old is the floor?

most common reason conc cracks is an insufficient / improper joint pattern,,, early ' loading ' is another as is improper curing,,, w/o more info & pics, its impossible to ' see ' your floor from our seats

' cracked everywhere ' could be crazing,,, they aren't ' cracks ' in most craftsmen's definition

your turn

I don't want to fill the cracks. I want some kind of top coat like U Coat It. But I don't think that stuff will hide cracks.
I will try to get some pics tomorrow.
Thanks
