Find this stuff truly tenacious. A lot of track riders used it cause it just doesn't pull off. I've not used it as rim cement mainly cause I want the option to REMOVE the tire without havin to cut it off
One use I have found though is to re-adher the basetape back to the casing after a repair - doesn't seem to work on all tires (I guess dependin on what is originally used on the tire casing) but for those that it does adher to, it is tenacious!
