Contact paste.

Properly seated adapters with contact electrical paste should not degrade electrical contact at all.

You best do your homework if you decide to use contact paste on the male and female IEC connector contacts. Short term it may be fine. I would suggest you look at the long term effects of using contact paste.

Contact paste works good where the connection is made air tight by use of a pressure connector. Example would be that of a hi-press or lessor crimp type connector. Even a terminal screw or terminal screw/ plate connector.

I personally would not use contact paste on the male blade and female contacts of a 120V connection. For one thing, especially on IEC connectors, it will work as a lubricant.....
