Some “free” Burndy Penetrox A…..I bought 8 oz, used maybe 1/8 oz, and the rest is available to any ham….use what you need and pass back what you didn’t use.  Excellent anti-corrosion compound for CU to CU, AL to AL, or AL to CU…..just be sure to wipe off the excess from the insulation as it’s highly conductive.
