I use Tomps https://www.tomps.com/specialist-rtv-silicone-rubber/

I mainly use the value silicone, its very good for the price and you get different speed kickers for it red fast and blue slow. It last very well.
I also use the polyurethane resin from them, works out well for me. ! prices are very good

While doing a search on this subject, I discovered that your link is no longer going anywhere. I'm hoping there is another working link and we haven't lost another useful company.
