Before I retired I worked on gas turbines and nitric acid expanders we always used milk of magnesia and never had a talked or broken bolt on the next teardown. Just don't shake the milk of magnesia you want to drain off the water first. The thicker it is the better, then just dip the bolts into the paste before installing them.

    interesting, whats in the milk of magnesia that prevents the bolt from seizing in the threads?

    The liquid evaporates and the magnesium oxide remains. This acts much like graphite except it holds up to high heat much better. In the applications I was using it in it was subject to temperatures of 1000- 1400 degrees f.
