Fitting carbon bars

Just bought some Truvativ NOIR carbon bars to fit on a Syncros FL stem. The instructions suggest to use friction paste. The bars already has a sort of bumpy sticky coating on the contact patch with the stem.

Is friction paste really necessary at the recommended 6nm torque value ?

Should friction paste also be applied to the shifter and brake levers ?

Can I use Dijon mustard instead of friction paste ?

if not, where do I find friction paste and which one is best ?
