Rim cement for aluminium tubulars is completely different from the cement for carbon rims. The different rim surface structure and the different heat conductivities of the materials mean that alloy and carbon rim glue are very different.*

* Apart from the issues of gluing a tire to carbon (getting a surface that’s free of carbon mold release agents), the main problem is its relatively low heat capacity. Carbon rims tend to heat up quickly and run hotter than alloy ones. On long mountain descents this can create a situation where the tubular glue heats up and loses its adhesive properties, greatly increasing the chances of rolling a tire.
