Thanks for the reply. Can you suggest some brands? I need this grease for electronic equipment and plastic gears.

Not sure why but, it's hard to find the silicone grease in Canada.

Try search for dielectric grease at the auto parts store, should work as well as silicone grease.

Only readily available rubber-compatible grease in Taiwan is ear-wax.

And there isn't very much of that.

What about CV joint boots? They don't seem to have silicon grease in them. Is that planned obsolescence?
