I'm looking at buying some anti-seize compound in a little more bulk than a 1oz tube. The ones I've been looking at come with a brush. A brush as well as coming in 8oz sizes means less waste (direct application), easier to apply, and a lot less messy. One of the things I've ran into while looking, though, is they come as different compounds.
There is (from one manufacturer):
- aluminum plate
- non-metallic marine grade
- moly plate
- copper plate
- nickel plate
What are each of these used for and how do they differ? Are there other bases besides what I have listed? If so, what are they used for?
