Default rubber sealant glue

What type of glue, which dries in a rubber form can be used on electronics? Something to seal where wires go.

Thanks

Neutral cure silicon sealant. Remember the neutral cure part, because regular silicone sealants are acidic before they cure and will corrode wires. I have no idea where to get the stuff though.

I use silicone sealant such as household silicone caulk or Dow Corning RTV. This has good electrical properties but one caution... until cured this stuff is acidic. Make sure the sealant is exposed to the air so that the curing process takes place normally. If the sealant area is enclosed then the curing process will be slowed down and corrosion may become a problem. I've seen situations where a wire nut was sealed with RTV and taped over with electrical tape in which the RTV never cured and severly corroded the copper wires.

There's also a wide variety of "high tech" hot melt glue sticks that stay rubbery.
