How to protect ABS from UV?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How to protect ABS from UV?

I'm making an ABS structure for an agricultural sensor. This means many hours a day under the sun. I'm looking for a solution to protect ABS from UV degradation, something like a spray or a varnish. Do you have any experience about this issue? Do you know if such kind of products exist?

I seem to remember that we had this discussion before, and the conclusion was an exterior grade spray paint, e.g. automotive.
