Default Rocksett

Hi, I did a search and didn't come up with anything, so here goes...

I'm curious if anybody has used Flexbar Rocksett instead of Loctite on their bikes? It's a very popular alternative in the gun industry for securing muzzle devices, especially in suppressed applications. It is designed to withstand high heat and is specifically designed to keep fasteners put in high vibration situations. Yet, it doesn't take much, if any extra torque, and doesn't require heat to release it. It's proven it's self with God knows how many suppressed rounds fired. So naturally, I'm thinking of using it with the Ironheads I need to fix up. It ain't cheap, though ($19 for 2oz), so I'm curious if anybody has used it and what the results were.

this falls into a super glue class
there are many type, all with diff properties
we are most familiar with the cynaoacrylates
the rocksett is a polymer with a sodium/potassium silcate base
a lot of paints use acrylic or poly bases
i see no issues, for case screw, i always used johnston paste wax. once engine heat drys the wax, it acts as a mild thread lock and cleans out easily with contact of brake cleaner. never lost a screw.
