I know many years ago POR-15 was marketed as not being UV color stable. In other words if you left it out in the sun it would hold up, but it would fade out and turn yellow or chalky.

I can vouch for this on a couple quarts of POR15 gray that I had used on a steel project. It did turn yellow after a year out in the sun. Still tough as nails though.

Maybe they have reformulated it now?

Apparently they sell a couple of new products that aren't UV sensitive.
