    any electronics shop should keep that ... and computer shops that sell components ... used between CPU and heatsink

    Just note that there is a difference between thermal epoxy and thermal paste.

    Thermal epoxy is a glue and thermal conductor in one.
    Thermal paste has no glue component and is commonly used on heatsinks for CPU's in computers.
    You may also contact Mantech Electronics in JHB CBD / RS electronics in Kyalami Business Park / Communica in Samrand.

    I have some thermal adhesive arriving in a few days. It all depends on how much you need.

    I use this stuff in military mission computers daily,depending on the size you want I can pass on some off cuts from the sheet type.The type we use is not an epoxy,you can remove it if needed.
