How to tell if canvas print has UV protective coating on it?

1 month 1 day ago #673685 by Gump
When the canvas provider is no longer around, and you want to tell if the print has a UV protective coating on it, is there a way to tell?

If not, if I spray some on it, can I do harm to the print if it already has the spray on it?

Most if not all quality printers us a UV protectant of some kind, but direct sunlight will still fade a print. NOTHING lasts forever!

Why so serious?

So, how long would you need to expose a print in the sun in order for it to show fading from the sun?

I'd try to protect a print for any direct sun, maybe email a printer and get their advice?
