After you turn valves on a lathe, or new valves even, they have a "rough" edge. You take this compund, smear it on the valve and the seat, suction cup a wood handle to the top of the valve, and spin the valve back and forth in its seat. Kind of like trying to start a fire. It mates the valve to its seat. Almost the consistancy of rubbing compound for paint.
