Stainless Steel is a particularly bad conductor of electricity, 40 times worse than copper, 10 times worse than Nickel and only 1.7 times better than nichrom, as used in resistance wire! So I doubt you will find Stainless steel N type plugs.
 
I use nickel plated N Types on boats with good results but not mounted on aluminium.
 
Some jointing compounds e.g. Duralac create an open circuit across the joint however Bicon should be fine.
