For aluminum on aluminum you want to use a ceramic never seize, this is a good one. Don't bother with Amazon they want $150 for a case, this place will sell you one.

Edit: I thought this might be of interest.

The Permatex is good stuff. For past 50+ years I've been using Never-Seize, graphite based, because my father used it. It has served me well, never has failed. You can get it at plumbing supply stores. I use it on car's lug nuts, besides bolts which are heated, exhaust, ... Bicycles, lawn mower bolts especially the blade bolt, snowblowers

Never seize on lug nuts will change the torque value. Lug nut torque relies on the friction of the nut threads and the friction of the nut shoulder and the wheel. Any lubricant will change the value.

DIYers, 99% of situations where Anti seize is used can just as well be served by chassis grease grin2

I was thinking using Al type anti seize, may not be a good idea on all Al parts, since it is already a case of Al on Al. That permatex is okay on steel bolts, just not sure about all aluminum.

Loctite C5-A. A Costco tire installer turned me onto this years ago and I've never looked back. It's a Cu/Al/graphite-filled grease. I use that stuff especially on bikes where a steel screw or bottom bracket shell threads into Al frames. I used to use it on spark plugs but not anymore.

+ 1 on Loctite Anti-Seize products! I've used it for over 10 years now on my Harley Davidsons. Just make sure you purchase the correct product for the job at hand.

That may not be exactly the case. I believe these are metal mixtures, and may include graphite, moly, oil, etc.

But I think your premise that the AS materials must be carefully considered is a good one.

I use this a lot, including wheels (on the hub, not the lugs), but decided against it after a while because Al and Cu aren’t a good pair. I read someplace that Zn anti seize is best for aluminum to steel connections, so that’s what I use there.

Aluminum to aluminum I’d probably consider nickel, marine type, or regular grease.

Nickel anti-seize works a treat on almost everything. Even the evils of stainless steel into aluminium.

For lug nuts and studs... Don't get it on the sear, threads only, and as a rule drop torque 10%. If it calls for 100ft/lbs, torque to 90.

Works great on the wheel face and hub lip, to keep your wheels from seizing on. So nice not having to beat your wheels or nuts off. *cough*
