Homebrew sealant on carbon rims long term

I've searched, I've read most of the Tubeless Mega Thread, I can't find anything about using Homebrew Sealant on carbon for an extended period.

As this bike has to and/or will be used as is for a very long time, I want to know if it will cause damage.

It's already tubeless, and I've used Wade's Secret Sauce on a different bike with good results. Just wanting to do something different to see if it's cost effective, but not if it's gonna cost me a $2k wheelset

Carte d'or what?
Isn’t it usually more of an issue for the wanker alloy nipples they use to justify the lighter wallet..I mean wheel.

carbon is fairly inert chemically speaking, i presume you are going to use latex, with something like glitter. id be holding off on using ammonia [though it has aparently little effecton carbon fiber, it can't be good for spokes]

It's been 12 months since my last batch, but the main ingredients are latex, glycol, and a little bit of slime.

The tough part is getting hold of the latex in my part of the world.
