    Most seem to be "fake" silicone as the carrier is mineral oil based!! So no good for Brake Calliper Slider or Guide pin's rubber bushes.
    Or others have a Lithium base .... which some say is mineral oil based with added Lithium to make it more slippery.

    Ideally something that is sold in sub 100g tubes.and sold in the UK.
    Thanks

    I have the ideal, very cheap, non-mineral based grease, which is just perfect for this sort of application.

    The downside is that it's only available per 200 Kg. That'd last a good few years!

    I could do 100 Kg.
