Dry out? No, that isn't going to happen. Those of us that use this stuff already know that.
Though you are correct that silver paste is more conductive, it also comes with the risk of using too much and creating an electrical short.
The primary purpose of Penetrox and Noalox is to keep ALREADY CLEAN, oxide-free, conductors (especially aluminum) from re-oxidizing, thereby maintaining good conductivity.
