Default silicone for removing case vibration noise

Good evening

I wanted to know what type of silicone is used to realize shock screws to secure the fans to homes or anti-vibration pads for power and where you can buy.

Thanks

Typically , anti-vibration screws use pre-formed rubber washers .

If you are looking for 'self-curing' silicone caulking kinda thing , There is only 1 brand to buy.

GE silicone II.

You can get it at rona/home depot.
