Hello.

I part my labtop adaptor out to fix bad connection problem. The wires were resoldered and it works as normal. After fixed the wire I can not find the look-like silicone. The gray color stuff was between the wires. I guess the stuff works for proventing electric shocks among those components. Can you guys tell what the gray stuff is? I look like normal silicone. Also please let me know where I can get that?

Here is picture.

The grey stuff is 'mastic putty' you should be able to find it at any local electrical supply shop, depending on your location.
 
Is that the real name? I looked that on the web but nothing pop up. Could you give me more infromation about that stuff?

Thanks.
