I don't know that I'd use MoS2 on tower joints.  It's more for high 
pressure mechanical moving things (e.g. drive chains on motorcycles). I 
think, because the Molybdenum is chemically bound to the sulfur, it's 
not going to react with the other metals and form dielectric junctions.
MoS2 is also an insulator (like most sulfides), so I don't know that it 
would perform the function of a NoAlOx kind of material, which, in part, 
is designed to ensure that you have good conductivity all the time.
