Some automotive supply stores sell a battery terminal paint, Whittaker had it in yellow color, another brand I used to buy was "CORRO-GUARD, by Rotanium, it came in a tall aerosol can and was black.. I am out of the black GI Issue battery box paint, or I would describe the label. Am sure it must still be in use by the military.
