I haven't used slime in tubulars, but I frequently ride my mountain bike in a desert area where cactus are unaviodable, and all who ride there quickly learn that they must use either slime tubes or tubeless with sealant or you will have 2 flat tires (minimum) guaranteed. Works great for small punctures! The downside is it does add weight and can seal the valve itself. And not sure if slime will work on latex tubes, if your tubies are so equipped.
