A couple of years ago I liberated a CASE of this stuff from the trash at
work.  It was 2 months past it's shelf life.  This stuff works great!  My
only complaint is that it is quite a bit more runny than standard RTV. 
Until it begins to set, about 15 mins, it will run and drip quite a bit. 
The other nice thing is that it comes in small 4 Oz tubes so you don't
have to worry about opening a big caulking cartridge just to do a few
bolts or coax connectors.
