I agree with this when it's inside the compressor. I also think that if you're going to use the stuff, you have to be meticulous and sparing in the way it's applied.I don't use any on internal components, flat gaskets, or the oil system.The bolts I'm talking about are on the outside of the o-ring and sealant. The anti-seize is contained to the threads. I put a tiny dab on the tip of the bolt and then spin the bolt in a rag, wiping all of it off, except for a very thin line inside each thread.
