    Won't make any difference, either one will end up all over everything- except for what you want it on.

    I think the one is more the retail, auto store, packaging, we always get the C5-A labeled bottles from our industrial suppliers.

    I use Jet-Lube Copperkote. It seems to be the most common around here. Or for stainless hardware Jet-Lube Nikal

    There can be 1 open bucket of Hydrocide on a 1,000 acre job site that I'm on the other side of and I will get it on my pants, then all over the drivers seat of my truck by the time I get home..:rolleyes:

    Should be called "Homicide" as you'll want to kill somebody after using it..:confused:

    You ain't lying there. We put that crap on a foundation for a new radar site in B'ham and it was all over the place whenever someone got close to the container.

    I've used the "Jet-Lube" moly paste for several years on stainless hardware and it does a great job of keeping either 304, or 18-8 stainless from galling when it's tightened down.

    The C5-A Loctite product was always used when grounding or bonding was to take place and it worked well there. Again, using stainless hardware.

    The last time I bought Loctite anti-seize I couldn't find copper. So, I bought aluminum. Good Lord ! that stuff gets on everything within a 100 yards of the can.
    Sadly, the container seems like it will never go empty.
