I chose this route because it's infinitely more removable than JB Weld. My original idea was to use it to just glue a PVC coupling around the business end of the element so that one couldn't touch it quite so easily. Once I got that do I figured I might as well fill the coupling up to prevent any touching of it at all... It was about an hour after that that I realized that it might not have been the best of ideas.
Brand is GE Premium Silicone Glue. Tube says it's waterproof and air tight. Tube says it bonds to most metals and plastics, and doesn't say anything about it being corrosive to anything.
