Conformal coating solution for slowing down brake hood stickyness/failure?

Hi all,
I've got a pair of sticky black rubber brake hoods circa 1986. Replacement hoods don't appear to be available for the Shimano SR-6200 aero levers, at least not that I can find. I want to hold off on replacing the levers + hoods - seems a waste.

Has anyone tried a sprayable conformal coating to slow the decay of brake hoods? If so do tell!
