Is 58-183 what I have? What can I do about UV protection?

A home owner from Florida says:
Please review my attached photos to see if you agree that I need Product 58-183 - 3/16" T-slot offset hollow foam seal 3/8" bubble weatherstrip.
I was able to photograph a piece from a protected window but the exposed/exterior windows have the same stripping, they're just crumbling to the touch.

Measurements are 3/8" for both the bubble and the base extension.

Would running a little UV protective coating over the sun exposed areas yearly help prolong the life of the exposed stripping? Our East and West facing windows are in the worst shape.

Thanks.

I agree, our 58-183 looks like a pretty good match, assuming the dimensions are the same. I also think using a UV protective coating is a great idea! That should definitely help preserve this weather stripping.
