    Is Suberlube conductive? I've seen people talk about using a thin film of it over rivets on steppers. If it's not conductive won't that cause the spring loaded contacts to not make a good electrical connection to the rivets? Just seems counter intuitive to put an insulator over an electrical connection.
    Thanks!

    No it is not.

    And no it doesn't, just because something is not conductive does not automatically mean it's an insulator. I use it on my stepper rivets, they run smoother and work better that way... also you need to be conservative with it, a little goes a long way!

    There seems to be several varieties of this product.
    For the contact rivets on advance units which works best?
    The spray, oil or grease version?

    I would just stick to the grease.

    Grease and oil for Stepper Units and other. Great stuff. The spray is not necessary and could be potentially messy.
