Exhaust sealant

What are your thoughts on best,good ,bad etc sealants to use on a 2T pipe when replacing O rings or just removing the pipe for maintenance, i notice i have some excess red coloured sealant around my pipe from when the O rings were replaced while some other work was done. I have not had it leak since then, almost 1 year now. If i had to pull the pipe i would like to use some kind of sealant that i can readily get. What are your suggestions and recommendations?

Cheers.

I just use standard black O-rings, and give them a smear with red RTV silicone, works a treat
