I did quite a bit of searching before and only found some older info, so I wanted to just put a note out there that Loxeal 58-11 (though expensive) is great. I did the Grafikus needle valve mod on my Linea Mini and initially used Rectorseal 5 because I was being cheap and couldn't find a Loctite product that was quite comparable. I still had a small leak with the rectorseal 5, so I bit the bullet and got Loxeal.

So far everything is holding up and it was way nicer to apply than rectorseal.

Loxeal 18-10 is the one I recommend for espresso machines and have recommended it to a few manufacturers.
