What kind of sealant do I need to seal a single wall vent pipe for a wood stove? Will a high temp silicone sealant with a temperature range up to 500 degrees work?

Our Answer:

Typically, sealant is not used on single wall stovepipe joints. Properly crimped stovepipe will not leak, nor does the newer welded pipe, which fits together very tightly. It is prudent to use sheet metal screws at each joint, as this will hold the pipe together in the event of a fire. However, when attaching the pipe adapter to the outlet on the stove, I recommend using Rutland Pre-Mixed Black Furnace Cement. The flue outlet can achieve temperatures in excess of 1,000 degrees, and this material is designed to deal with that heat range.
