I can't answer your question but the Duco company may have this info. in their website tech docs?

FWIW, usually TIM tape is used if you want to remove the heatsinks in the future. Duco cement may not retain it's strength when heated by the MOSFETs. If you want something permanent then use thermal epoxy. If you're testing/playing then I'd recomment thin TIM tape if the heatsinks are not mechanically retained.

It is listed as non-conductive, but not sure what heat transfer properties are plus it's only rated to 60c (boiling pt 132F)

I know that's not the intended use, but maybe your using in a pinch? There are certainly better options though, duco cement would be my last choice. Sorry.
