The dry film thickness of the paint that did not allow UV to discolor
the epoxy was 5 mils (0.005 inches) thick. We need to do a more
controlled test to make sure of this number, but it looks like if you
have 5 mils of white paint over the epoxy composite you will be safe for
many years. If you put a black tint in it it is even better, and a red
tint works well also.

So the answer is .005 inch is the answer, not 5mm. I heard mils as mm,
but I heard wrong.
