Anyone know what the thermal compound used on the thread of the heat break in a genuine E3D V6 is? (no its not in the hot end, please don't derail the thread)

None came with my order, I probably missed it...

I really don't want to wait a month for some to arrive from quite literally the other side of the planet, if I can avoid it.

I believe it is ordinary semiconductor heatsinking compound. That's what it looks and feels like. It's not the expensive silver-loaded variety, it's white.

I rebuilt a Chimera a couple of weeks ago and used what is called Premium Ceramic Polysynthetic Thermal Compound by Artic Silver. It was leftover from a PC build a few years ago. I've done some 11 hour PETG prints and have had no jams.

link to provider that lists whats in the compound https://e3d-online.com/thermal-compound-paste

it has:

Silicone Compounds 50%
Compounds of carbon: 20%
Metal Oxide Compounds: 30%

i did a search and found StarTech.com 1.5g Metal OxIDE
has metal oxide in it. i don't know how much percentage of each others it has. it is designed for cpu heat sinks.

The real stuff arrived, and looks nothing like the packaging pictured online.
