What kind of paint do they use when they paint the walls in a school or bathrooms in stores that look like they were painted with plastic? They seem to fill up the pores and are so durable and shinny.

They use EPOXY PAINT (usually 2-part altho recently 1-part is used via spray operation)…

It's the primer that does the trick- block fill primer. This special primer is designed to fill in the pores of concrete block before painting. Any shiny paint can be put over it.
