Whats your recommendations on products to remove paint from concrete flooring?

Its a thrashed shop floor, some spots have paint half an inch thick, and after removing a lot of it with a pressure washer its deep too. Soaked into the concrete a good ways, to the point where the pressure washer would start gouging cement if you use it more on them.

Was thinking just a generic paint thinner. but would also like to know if there are better products that could soak in the pores and remove it.

Thanks for any recommendations!

Paint could be latex or oil base. Paint thinner will not remove latex. I would go to a local paint store, not Lowe's or Home Depot, but an actual paint store like Sherwin Williams and ask someone there. They deal with these questions all the time and can likely make a few good recommendations.
