  • Just ordered a tube of that stuff. 👍



  • Interesting. I've been using automotive antiseize compound on everything that goes into the heater block and it seems to work OK. I think it is some sort of grease that's loaded with graphite powder because it's black and extremely messy to handle. Is the copper filled stuff any neater?

    It's copper in colour but I suspect it has a fair bit of graphite in it because it makes your hands black if you do get it on them. It's about the same consistency as "Pritt Stick" though - almost solid - a bit like wax. The tube works the same way as Pritt Stick - you turn the base which pushes it out of the top. So I kind of wiped the cartridge with it which is easy to do without getting on your hands and it doesn't drip or anything like that. Definitely not as messy as grease.
