Can I use foil tape to seal joints a few feet from the furnace on the stove pipe? Or will the adhesive smolder? Is there a special heat durable tape I should look for? What are the heat limitations of such a foil tape?
I have plain foil tape on the pipe joints for my EFM, but the pipe itself rarely gets to 200 degrees. If you burn strictly coal, I think the tape will work alright. If you burn wood...it will probably cook the tape & adhesive pretty good.
Thanks for the replies fellas I burn coal only and my pipe never sees 300 degrees. Actually, my pipe rarely if never gets up to 250 degrees. I'm just looking to make sure it couldn't catch fire in the event of accidental overfire.
My old pipe was just cheap aluminum all patch together and seams always leaked. This year upgraded to champion dual wall and also new Rutland furnace cement at the thimble joint. Been working pretty good.
