High-heat silicone for wood stove?

Hi,
I just had a nice Vogelzang wood stove (BX26E) installed in my house. It says in the instruction manual that the fire prove seams will have to be redone as they will burn away over time, I think they're made of fiber glass.

Question: Can I use high-temp RTV silicone (permatex) to fill the seams to help protect the stove from leaking out embers from the inside of the stove? Can the silicone handle the direct high heat (flames) from the wood burning stove???

Thanks,

You should just replace the seals with the appropriate material. It's not that difficult to do. I believe they last fairly long as well. The seals are there to keep air out, not to keep embers in.
