If I'm using anti-seize, I still don't reduce the torque on the fastener. I use the amount specified by the application. The reason being is, in most places where torque is a factor, getting the clamping load even is more important than is the factoring in the amount the lube will reduce the need for torque. The anti-seize will work as a lubricant on the ...
