Are you sure that won't cause a short ?
The isolation voltage of Aluminium Oxide (which is the surface layer after anodization) is 16 kV per mm, so with a layer thickness of 10 um, you have 160 V usable isolation. The actual isolation is usually better though. 10 um is the minimum layer thickness, and the paste also adds a little distance, and thus maybe 100V more of isolation.
I would use it up to 160 V, and sleep safely at night.

Watch out for scratches, and metal splinters!
