Looking for Poly Butyl Cuprysil Grease

I'm not having any luck here.

I'm looking for Poly Butyl Cuprysil (PBC) grease for a top secret project I'm working on.

Does anyone know where I can get some of this stuff?

TIA!

Enjoying the ride,

Put some milk and cookies on the front steps, when an alien lands to get them steal the grease from their ship.

Greetings!

Polybutyl Cuprysil (sometimes also called Polybutyl Cuprosil) is simply silicon grease with a copper pressure additive. It is used extensively in brake systems to lubricate caliper bolts and the like because the silicon grease base can withstand higher temperatures than Lithium soaps or organic soaps and the copper additive can take higher pressure than Molybdenum additives.

This very same composition is often sold as high-temperature anti-seize compound, so if you can't find it being sold as a brake caliper lubricant you might find it as an anti-seize. I'll also bet you can order it from Summit Racing.

Best Regards,
Lee E. Brown

ah HA! Is it copper colored? I remember seeing that somewhere, I didn't know you could use it for acne.
