Get a grip.
Park Tool Supergrip Carbon and Alloy Assembly Compound creates a better grip between slippery surfaces, so you don't have to deal with slippery seatposts, stems, or handlebars anymore.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
There is really nothing wrong with this product, holds true, never had damage to carbon, and a little goes a long way. My only complaint is really just personal preference, but I didn't realize how this was more liquid like than solid. I prefer a solid paste otherwise it gets messy.
Consistent with Park Quality
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Works just fine for seatposts and other small products that interface with carbon. I have heard it is a bit more abrasive than other brands, but I have never had parts damaged.

I'm not certain the issue that the one poor review has had but I have used this with no issues. I used this to attach a dropper post lever to carbon bars and also for the seat post on the dropper in the seat clamp as recommended by manufacturer specs. Everything was torqued accordingly and it has been working as advertised with no issues or damage.
I have never had an issue with Park Tool items and they know bikes.
Keeps carbon stuff together just fine for me.
I have used Carbon compound plenty of times before, but this is my first with this brand. The compound beads in this one are rather large and do not "pop" when pressure is applied during clamping or tightening. It then makes large holes in your carbon. For Instance my carbon handlebars have very large noticeable holes in them and yes I torqued it to spec. A friend of mine took a look at the compound and then threw bottle in the garbage and said don't use it anymore. Go with FinishLine or FSA compound. Honestly i was a little surprised since I own other Park Tool items such as all purpose grease and Tools. Oh and do not use on seatposts! no matter the brand of compound!
