tubeless tires - do I need milk for high pressure?

I want to go tubeless and need some info on that. Does the milk help anyhow in holding pressure? or is it only for protection against holes?

can I use orange seal subzero (that has less sealing capacity but perishes slower) and still have 5 bar pressure or do I need to go for orange seal regular with better sealing capacity to go up to 5 bar?

sealent will help hold pressure... not every tire will be airtight on every rim. It will seal the microleaks
