I was wondering if I could use any anti seize lube from a automotive store or does the product have to be made for BP guns? Also applying the anti seize lube on the nipples of a BP gun do you apply it on the whole thread of the nipple?

Yep anti seize is anti seize no matter how it's packaged. I've had a stick of CVA brand forever. I just give the nipple threads a spin in the stuff and make sure the base is clean.

Used this for years at work. You are not doing it right unless you get it all over your hands, clothes, face..........

It really doesn't matter what brand of never seize you use. I've been using RIG (and it is not marketed as anti seize) for several years (decades). As long as it is for high heat and you only tighten the nipples to snug any good grease will work.

As soon as you open the container, it magically gets all over anything that is within 10 feet of the container

Anti-seize is anti-seize no mater what brand or what store you buy it from just make sure it IS an anti-seize compound ;) . Do not over apply the stuff or you will be getting it all over:ghostly:. I use the stick end of one of those 6" wooden stick cotton swabs and apply a SMALL DAB of anti-seize to a small section of the nipple thread and when you screw the nipple in the anti-seize will coat the rest of the thread. A little goes a LONG way:thumb::ThankYou:

I would use a tooth pick and put a dab on about 2threads from face of the nipple to keep the face free of any contamination...and don’t over tighten....doesn’t take much...
