    Anybody know where I can get a small quantity of electrically conductive grease such as Conduct-O-Lube from Cool-Amp? The smallest container of Conduct-O-Lube is about $325.00.
    I probably need 1/4 ounce or less of something like that stuff. There's lots of conductive glue and PCB repair stuff but no grease.
    Can anyone help?

    Silver Grease

    Due to the amount of powdered silver needed to be conductive, you won't find any for cheap unless the conductivity is > 100Ω.

    Have you measured the conductivity of the copper colored NeverSeize? The web page says that it has good conductivity but doesn't give a value; http://www.neverseezproducts.com/antiseize.htm#copper Autozone and the like have small tubes of it if you don't have any to measure.

    What is the application? Would there be some metal contact, such a ball bearings, and the grease as a filler? What are the current requirements?

    Just went to my 1Lb tin of Copperkote grease & checked the resistance across 2 probes about 1mm apart. Normal multimeter Ohms infinity on 20M range. Using a 500V Megger 15M ohm. hope thats of some help.
