    help me buy some Anti-Seize

    Hi there - I'm totally ignorant on the anti-seize thing, but I need to get some for some Ti stuff I just bought.
    Can someone tell me exactly what I'm looking for at the hardware store? I'll probably go to Home Despot - so if I could get a brand name to look for? I know I won't be getting much customer service at HD.
    thanks guys!

    You might be surprised at the service you can get at home despot.
    Much better than say Lowes for example.

    As for antiseize, I picked up the only bottle I found at auto zoned.
    I'd have prefered the aluminum for my application but ended up with a copper paste.

    For Ti the copper kind would be prefered to the Aluminum.
    (Better from a galvanic standpoint.)

    Go to your LBS they should have Finishline Ti-prep and may even just give you a sample pack they have lying around.

    I have an old can of Bostik Never seeze that will probably last me for the rest of my life. If you want to impress your friends, buy a big can of their "Nuclear Grade - the standard of the Nuclear Industry" stuff Bostik Never Seeze
    Here is a page that describes the types of anti seize compounds and what makes a good one etc. It describes high Nickel based ones as being best for Titanium:
