Use ceramic on top you will be fine---Look at Jiffset and Linewebers latex--read the directions---

add sand to the deep parts--makes it stronger and cheaper---mix it thin --work fast--

I've been using that brand for 18 years without an issue---Mike---

Mapei International is one company that makes and sells Self Levelling Compound that is intended to be a wear-surface and is intended for use when acid-etch staining. Take alook at their website. You'll have to sift through their SLC products but it's there.

Ardex is another.
