Copper Spray Brand and Application

I did a search but came up with zilch regarding copper spray adhesive and exhaust manifold gaskets.

Have any of you used copper spray adhesive when changing gaskets i.e. head, exhaust? The write-up that I am following on the exhaust manifold swap says to use copper spray on the exhaust manifold gasket. I found Permatex and Versachem brands. Any experience with either of these brands? Any advise regarding the proper way to apply the copper spray?

Thanks for your help.

Ive used the Permatex copper coat on a head gasket on my Suzuki motard (motorcycle).Worked good,you spray on 2 light coats,both sides,let them dry overnight if possible before installation.........

Use permatex and just coat the gasket well, not soaking it. The second time i changed the manifold, it wasnt stuck to everything like the original was. The copper spray keeps it from cooking to the head.
