Concrete Slab - Sealing

So I just had the barn floor slab poured today. It took 35 yards for 2800 sq ft.

I sprayed on a curing compound and now need to decide what I will do next month for sealing after I reach the 28 day cure mark.

What are the recommendations on sealing of indoor slabs?

On my last barn, I used Sherwin Williams Armorseal, but it didnt last more than a year before I had problems, even with acid etching. Additionally, it is expensive. For the 1700 sq ft I used it on, I spent over $500.

My goal is the ensure the floor lasts a rather long time and not have to worry about big stains from the tractor or other equipment that will leak either hydraulic oil, engine oil or diesel fuel.
