I'm looking for some recommendations for an anti-seize compound for my supressor. In the past I've used automotive brake anti-seize and it seemed to work pretty well. I've lost my little tube of it though, and thought I'd ask for other folks' thoughts and experiences since surely there's something better (though not necessarily that much better for the price).

For full disclosure, and so the advice is actually helpful to me, the can is an AAC Prodigy [.22LR, aluminum construction, two piece for "easy" cleaning]

We all know how dirty .22LR is and it being so cheap, my can will often pass 500+ rounds in any given shooting session. Without my cheapo sonic cleaner, this can would have long since stopped being a two piece and would've been forever a one piece carbon collector. When I started using the brake anti-sieze I found it took the sonic cleaner much less time to break the threads free and that the baffles and tube cleaned up much easier/faster as well.

I usually like permatex stuff. Is their anti-sieze a high temp formula? I'm guessing it is if it works great. I haven't looked for it - where do you get it?

The permatex stuff works great. It goes to 1600 deg F. They do have a Copper one at Autozone that is for exhaust stuff.

I use the auto stuff, but not the copper flavor. Copper + another metal like aluminum can theoretically cause problems - you essentially can create a "battery" that theoretically could cause corrosion like a zink anode on a boat. I seriously doubt it could actually cause a problem, and I don't understand enough about how it works, but I avoid the question by using the silver kind.
