Paint is UV resistant. If it's in full sun, a bit of paint goes a long way. Sorry can't answer your specific question.

Here's some info:
"Bulk Outdoor CAT6 Ethernet Direct Burial and Aerial Cable
Ethernet cable to be installed outdoors requires thicker, more durable jacketing to withstand the elements. Outdoor CAT6 cable has denser PVC jacketing sometimes with UV resistant materials to handle long term sun exposure. Direct burial outdoor CAT6 cable is manufactured with either gel filling or water blocking tape preventing moisture from reaching the conductors. When installed for aerial applications, outdoor CAT6 cable will have a steel messenger wire to prevent sagging.

Protect your bulk cable from underground moisture with the CAT6 Outdoor Bulk Ethernet Cable, Direct Burial Shielded. Aluminum foil shielding protects its solid 23 gauge copper conductors from electrical interference. Water blocking tape provides further insulation to repel moisture. This outdoor CAT6 cable is suitable for outside plant, 550MHz. high speed data, and Gigabit Ethernet applications. This 1,000 foot outdoor bulk CAT6 cable is provided on wooden spools of 250, 500, and 1,000 foot lengths.

Outdoor CAT6 cable with water blocking tape is cleaner and easier to work with, but when application involves extreme temperature environments, gel filled cable might be preferable.

This is the WORST Cable you can possible buy. If you already installed it hire someone to pull it out!
