    Yep. The main ingredient is the vehicle which is the paste part of it 
that holds the metallic particles in suspension. Current anti-oxidant pastes 
use molybdemum, petroleum or other materials. These are non-conductive.

     The metallic particles in suspension are what pierce the outer oxidized 
layer under compression to actually do the conducting. These particles are 
commonly  copper or zinc.
