Need advise on choosing epoxy floor coating

I coated my shop floor 25 years ago and its time to redo. The epoxy I used held up very well, trouble is I can't remember the manufacturer. Since most of the stuff at home centers is not much better than porch paint, I hope someone can assist in pointing me in the right direction. Thanks in advance for your help.

i used Rustoleum on bare (etched) concrete in a commercial building 5 years ago and can't see any wear, scuffs, flaking. I'm stunned.

I'd be sure to check a re-coating will stick to the older surface. HA! Maybe a little wet 400 grit.....

As mentioned (in humor) by mitch, getting paint to stick is all in the prep work
even the cheap costco epoxy paint I used on my basement floor is holding up fine due to my prep work
