I would try an electrical supply outlet that caters to contractors. They 
typically carry that sort of thing. However, last year when I installed my 
Mosley PRO-67B, a conversation with the President of Mosley indicated that 
there is a wide variety of the conductive "goop", so I'd somehow find out how 
to quantify the conductivity and life characteristics of what the suppliers 
have available.  Penetrox is one brand name I have heard of.
