Default Composite Head Gaskets

I know it's not recommended but what can I put on composite head gaskets to make it seal better? Thanks

Spray copper coat.Napa sells it under another name but similar stuff.
I use a light coat on some stuff to hold it in place moreso than to seal.

You must putting your Titan back together. I agree with the previous poster and I use a light coating of a "Coopercoat" type spray sealer. It's worked on trucks/engines/tractors that I've worked on with composite head gaskets. I don't know if the sealer is needed, but at least it's never caused me a problem using it.
