High temperature caulk comparison update

high temp caulk update on quality comparison

Its been about a year since we applied a coat of DAP high temperature caulk to our first Jotul wood stove chimney pipe and the only thing left is just a few chips laying on the roof.

I suspect something was wrong with the tube we got because it took an extreme amount of pressure to get it to squeeze out and once it was out I had to keep applying water to keep it moldable.

The 3M high temperature caulk we used on the second Jotul was much easier to apply and is still holding strong.
