Rough Concrete Pad - what paint?

    I want to make concrete pad a bit more decent. I've just done patching it up and want to give it a quick lick if paint. It's outside, and fairly rough surface.

    Will exterior masonry paint do? (The stuff that people normally put on walls) or should I go for more expensive floor paint?

    Masonry paint won't stand up to abrasion and the general wear and tear from foot traffic. Best paint would be an 2 part epoxy floor paint I would imagine, although these need to be applied to cured concrete that's dry, clean and not too smooth.
