Anyone used that copper gasket spray by VHT? I've been told it's good for headgaskets?

I've been using it for years, it's not really needed on non retorque gaskets but i still use it, it's never done any harm that's for sure.

In the old days, a lot of head gaskets were tin type, and they applied this stuff called " Silver Frost" to the gasket before fitting. Some Jap made gaskets are still coated in this stuff today.

I recently used it on my head gasket and no problems, the old man has been using it for years on Clevo heads and no problems at all. Its well worth the $15.00. It was originally used in the racing field where heads were removed to check bore sizes and so on. Some race engines only use the copper spray and no gasket.
