i just posted that i use it. it is messy if your not careful, but you can use the messy side of it to make sure you got everything covered. be prepared to wipe up the sticky little drip strings that will happen. just dont put it on too thick it will take too long to dry, multiple thin coats is the trick to it. takes longer than heat shrink, but i think its better at sealing, esp if you dont use adhesive lined heat shrink.

now heat shrink is better for physical protection but the plastic on the crimp is even better. in the long run i would say there is no difference in quality or longevity of a liquid tape or adhesive lined heat shrink. its what makes you feel better
