No it will not. As long as the LiquidMetal doesn't touch aluminium you're good. LM and Al react with each other and it does bad things to the Al. Nickle and Copper are safe.

On the subject of a direct die mount, make sure you get the standoff they make for this purpose and be very careful. Easy to crack the chip doing this.

Can't argue with the results though because a DD mounting just doesn't GAF about loads typically. Very good temps but definitely risky.
