This is the stuff - they have it in all manner of thicknesses: https://musicmedic.com/products/repair-supplies/materials/cork-products/techcork-sheets-125-mm-x-100-mm-sheets.html

0.3mm to 0.4mm is a good general thickness for under adjusting screws, linkages and discs glued to the body (under the LH1 fingerplate adjusting screw) on all oboes and cors.

If you want more sound absorption in some places or with a bit more give (such as the linkages between the joints and the disc or semicircle glued to the G# pad cup), then 0.5mm is better for that.

The sliding linkages are where there's sliding motion between two separate and linked keys - the trill key overlevers, the Ab-Bb trill overlever, the LH F link overlever, the split D#-E trill overlever, the low C# overlever and anywhere else that has an overlever or linkage piece that slides against another piece of keywork. Also the forked F vent pad cup can benefit from having its key cork graphite coated to make it slide against the rocker easily.
