HP Indigo Grease Molykote HP-870 where can I get some?

HP Indigo 5900

Has anyone found where to get Molykote HP-870 Grease for their Indigo Printer at a reasdonable price?  HP is now charging $700 for a 100g tube!  Since we are part of the click-charge program we can get it at a "discount" of $350.  I have been searching everywhere for a cheaper price or a cheaper alternative.  Any ideas???

I don't mean to sound rude, but DUH!  Of course I've tried Google as well as this and many other forums and similar product websites.  I found a place in the UK that sells it for about $220 (plus shipping) for 100g tube and a place in China (via eBay & Alibaba) that sells a 500g tub for $600.  It's a better price than the HP price, but still darn expensive.  I was hoping someone may know of a cheaper source.

 

The HP Indigo requires a very specific type of grease.  Dow makes dozens of types of Molykote and it seems the HP-870 is one that is really tough to find.  Thanks.
