You may be right, although, Iím not totally convinced.

Hereís my problem. All single stage automotive paint regardless of whether its enamel, urethane or acrylic lacquer is labeled as UV protected. Urethane clear however, unless labeled otherwise is not. Meaning no additive has been added obviously.

The reason this is a problem is that I find it hard to believe that any of these corporations would spend the money to add an additional additive when it is notoriously known they chinch on everything they produce. Therefore, If theyíre not adding a UV protectant as I seriously suspect then I can only assume the pigmentation in the colors is the reason for the protection they claim.

I may be wrong here but I donít think so.
