I think it would be unwise to use materials other than those designed for the purpose. After all, the amount used per CPU (or other device) is tiny and the cost miniscule compared with the cost of the item it is protecting.

Trying a non proprietery product, could perhaps cause more harm than good.Someone did a similar posting, a short while back.
