Default anti-seize compound

reading through the installation instructions on the rra advanced half quad free float tube it says to use anti-seize compound. why would you use that on an ar15?? coming apart isnt a desired feature in my understandings.

Coming apart isn't a desired feature but getting it apart at some future point may be. The anti-seize compound will prevent the tube from seizing to the threads but will not prevent a tight, rattle-free fit.

Anti-sieze like for spark plugs in my car? At least it is available in small packages that aren't expensive.

Even without free-float tubes, anti-seize is recommended (or is that mandated in the TM?) for installing the barrel nut to the receiver.

Just avoid anything with graphite as a lubricant. Graphite and aluminum do not go together in a dissimilar metal connection, it may accelerate the galvanic corrosion and seizing that you are trying to prevent.
