[rp-ml] SLA Resins Longevity

I am curious to find out whether parts build with SLA resins which are UV sensitive could be protected against light exposure and preserved for many years simply by giving them 2 or 3 coats of paint either acrylics, enamels or even lacquers.
Can painting be considered reliable method of preserving SLA parts even if they are exposed to sunlight...? What would be an average number of years before there is some noticeable to human eye level of deterioration.

Thank you
