I have a couple of boxes of those from 3M, built for use by NASA. In theory they are bomb-proof, gas-tight, totally sealed, but the weak point is the actual APPLICATION process. They are pretty damned hard to use without the matching special heat gun, they will not set up properly over any old heat shrink gun or solder flame--at least not this particular type. You may have something very similar but "different enough" to work better with regular tools.
