I am with Curt on this one. Sounds too good to be true, which means it usually is such.

Seems like snake oil to me. I don't see stuff coming out of a garden sprayer somehow migrating 
6" into existing concrete. I also don't see it being "like adding more cement to 
concrete". Big bold claims like that usually make me question...

We could have used that stuff in the basement of our home in Indiana. When we did a radon test, it scored 9 PCI/L.

4 is considered the minimum threshold for remediation.

These work well in basements. http://www.dricore.com/en/index.aspx
Would likely work well in the shed too.
Also try,

http://www.radonseal.com/radonseal-mitigation.htm

     RadonSeal® has been the leading concrete sealer for commercial and
     residential projects since late 1990's. It is a reactive internal
     sealer for poured concrete, concrete blocks, mortar, and other
     cementitious materials.

     RadonSeal penetrates deep into concrete (up to 6" depending on
     porosity), reacts, expands inside the pores, and cures as a silicate
     mineral. Once cured, it will seal your concrete permanently against
     water seepage, efflorescence, water vapor, and even radon gas.

     Unlike common sealers (coatings) and waterproofing paints sold in big
     box stores, RadonSeal will never peel or wear away. It cannot be
     pushed out from the pores regardless of hydrostatic pressure! The
     internal seal becomes integral to the concrete itself – there is never
     a need to re-apply the sealer again! RadonSeal will make your concrete
     denser and stronger - it is like injecting more cement into the
     concrete.

IIRC you didn't put a vapor barrier under the concrete so the advice
we as a group gave you last year was a pretty resounding neither.
Your problem is that moisture WILL creep up through the concrete. If
you paint it the paint will fail rapidly, just the like the paint in
my basement does and for the same reasons. If you put carpet it'll
probably mold like Grant suggests.Probably the best option to my mind
is to cover the floor with plastic and deck it with plywood. The
moisture will migrate along the plastic and out the edges... -Curt
