Lubing SLK roof..?

On different sites I read that that the elements of a SLK roof has to be lubed by:
Metal on metal: by lithium grease
Metal on rubber: by silicon grease
Rubber on rubber: Krytox
Mercedes is recommending its own roof lube... “Sliding compound lubrification oil”...
Part no: A 000 9893660 Just 30 ml and 43.03 Euros (+/- 60 US dollars)...
Shin-Etsu for Honda S2000 is no more available...
Any alternatives products and prices in Europe or elsewhere for Metal/Metal, Metal/Rubber and Rubber/Rubber..?
