Clear coat UV protection for colors.

I have zar exterior oil and krylon clear coat on-hand. Am sealing acrylics that will be in the full sun A LOT.
Anybody have specific experience with uv blocking, color protecting clear coat? I don't care about yellowing.
Also, I know what the labels read, just curious if anyone else has been as interested in protecting color and seen something hold up over the years.

I'm having a similar problem with some timber cills that are inside windows receiving full sunlight. I used NGR dye and then acrylic clear because the original color was completely bleached-out, but I suspect the same thing is going to happen again over time. As there are no UV protected clears, I could only suggest possibly a window film?
