I have a threaded joint that we are having problems with. The male thread is 304 Stainless and the hole is 6061-T6. thread is 8-32. We are starting to get some failures in the threads (gauling, aluminum shavings...). We continuously use the same steel thread and the aluminum part may see as much as 10 cycles.
Would a dry film lubricant be of benefit on the male thread (such as Loctite 39893). I've never used such a product.
