Copper Brake Grease?

:
2014 Mazda CX-5 AWD Touring
Can anyone tell me what the copper brake grease that comes with the factory Mazda pads is actually called? You'd think after being a Mazda tech for 1 1/2 years I would have figured out what it was called but never did. What I do know is it is NOT anti-seize. Just trying to see if I can find the equivalent elsewhere for when I finally run out of the hoard of this grease I already have. Whenever I Google it the only results I get are for anti-seize.

Based on Mazda Factory Service Manual the brake grease comes with OEM brake pads is called Molykote 7439. It's brown colored some sort of moly grease.

You*d be far better with a ceramic grease than copper grease.
