A modern epoxy of some sort. It comes like putty which you knead together with the hardener. You can get underwater epoxy that sticks to steel submerged in seawater! Ship engineers use it for temporary repairs to water pumps and the hull etc.

’Copperease’ antiseize grease by Comma is fantastic. I use it for almost every machine screw, bolt and nut I take apart or assemble, even furniture and car wheel nuts. If you don’t, you won’t be able to apply the correct tightening torque to the wheel nuts, because rust and friction etc will give you a false reading and then they won’t be tight enough. I have never had one undo.
