If you want something that's removable, that fills gaps, doesn't shrink, that does not require heat to remove, and yet will work at least once (or may be twice) if unscrewed, try ShoeGoo spread on the threads.

A weaker chemical solution would be a non-hardening teflon based thread sealant. Permatex sells one that comes in a can with a brush.

Or what about plain old teflon tape?

Thread locking compounds are seldom a good solution when there is a chance that the components will need to be separated at some point.
