I use a mixture of Boeshield T9, LPS 3 and ACF-50, in about equal proportions. The mixture works better than any of the components individually and I get all 3 from aircraft suppliers. I may need to reapply the mixture only once or twice per winter and this only on the chain - on other places it holds on with far more resilience.
