I looked into this a while ago and there is a bit of confusion. The sikkens UK data sheet says its for internal use only, but another data sheet which i think is the european one says its ok for exterior use. The only way to know for sure is to give them a ring. Bedec exterior gear is good and i'm sure they do a satin.
The sikkens u/c is very good, nice to use and covers and dries well. Follow it with two top coats. Be careful with drying times of your top coat, i've used a lot of sikkens XD and it needs a minimum of 24hrs between coats to avoid shrivelling, also the satura can be a pain for runs, you check it and its fine then go back ten minutes later and there's a drip or two, apply sparingly!
And post back the results please.
