Ah! 'cling film' That's a bit more descriptive and generic......It's amazing how much stuff, in the US in particular, is known by non-descriptive brand names.Clingfilm .... sandwich wrap that clings to itself ...
and is a PITA to use to be honest
Glad Warp (brand name), Saran Wrap (brand name), Plastic Wrap (proper name). Never heard of cling film but would have thought of the industrial wrapping often used on pallets as its actual design is to stick together whereas that's a annoying side-effect of plastic wrap.Ah!

I've never believed in sealers on gaskets but based on a recommendation here a few months ago I got some of this specifically for timing cover gaskets to help keep them in place while installing the cover. I've used grease for that before and it works but so far, I like this better. Any oil or grease on a gasket can make it swell - that's good when installed, but I would rather not pre-swell them.Permatex 80697 Copper Spray-A-Gasket Hi-Temp Adhesive Sealant https://a.co/d/bGOgntW
The great thing about this stuff is that it is tacky when it dries and keeps the gasket in place, but once it cures, it releases and the gasket can be reused. (With the exception of head gaskets of course)
WTF is gladwrap?
