Syntace Friction Paste

So this stuff is designed to increase friction between parts, which, among other things, would reduce the necessary torque to hold components in place, thereby protecting carbon bits from being crushed.

Here's the link: http://www.syntace.com/index.cfm?pid=3&pk=1347

Apparently the folks over at Gunnar Bikes have had luck using this stuff to keep slipping seatposts in place. I've got an issue with slipping seatposts, and I'd like to give this Friction Paste a try. Unfortunately, I can't find it for sale anywhere in the U.S.

Is anyone familiar with this stuff and where it can be purchased in the states?
