Default Looking for finish that protects from UV and fading

HI-

I'm making an outdoor sign for some friend's business. Can anyone recommend a clear finish that protect from weather and fading of color ?

Thanks

No clear, regardless of claims, can UV protect like an ever so slightly tinted finish
(technically prescription glasses or windows provide a "measurable amount" of UV protection, but you'll need some kind of science-type equipment to measure it)

Best bet is a "spar" varnish or urethane, or Sikkens Clear Door & Window
