I dunno, but allow me to digress:

I use something called OXGARD. I think/hope it's the same stuff. I put a
smear of it on a non-metallic flat surface yesterday so I could see how
conductive it was. I was surprised to see no deflection at all in my VOM
when I stuck the two probes into it. It looks like it's impregnated with
zinc or some metal so what gives?  The joints I've used it on show good
electrical connections so I'm relieved to see that it's not the perfect
insulator that it appears to be when not in contact with metal.
