Maintenance on Fiberglass Textured Roof Walkways

What works to protect the textured walkways on fiberglass roof from UV? I'm using auto wax on the smooth portions.

I usecWoody Wax on boat non skid. Protects w/o being too slippery.
It's EZ on but doesn't last as long as I'd like it.

The first time I waxed the roof, I used a auto paste wax on the entire roof.... smooth areas were no problem, the textured walkways were a real challenge to do. They ate up polishing rags like crazy. Since then ( 9 yrs ag), I've been using Optimum Spray Wax on the roof. Both on the smooth and textured areas. It have pretty good UV protection . Just spray it on and give it a quick wipe. Since it's so east to do, I do it 3 times a year.
Here's the product I use....
