There are 'soupier' mixes of concrete patch -- available in a
cartridge for a caulking gun. The thinner version would probably
penetrate into the hairline crack better than the standard thickness.
Another option would be the stuff that gets painted on walls. Can't
recall the name of it but some hardware stores have a display of a
cement block with half painted with this stuff (it's white) with water
running. The unpainted side seeps. Not sure how this stuff holds up
on a floor though. (Works fine on walls -- painted my workshop area
in the basement maybe 10 years ago.)
