Using Gas Vent pipe for Woods Stove Chimney

I am putting in my wood stove soon and I have 10 sections of Duravent double wall stainless Gas vent pipe. I know if I use the wrong stuff I could burn my house down.

But I was told by a master pipe fitter and venting specialist that if I remove the gasket and replace it with the high temp stove caulking that it would work for my chimney pipe. He said that the pipe heat rating is for the gasket and if I replaced it with something that gets the higher temp rating that it would work for the chimney. Is there any validity in this?

Also, my stove will be in my basement, on a cement slab with a brick hearth pad and against a block wall. And I need to use extra long wall straps because I need to clear the edge of my roof instead of going through it. There will be a lot of clearance between the chimney and house.

Use the correct materials for the job, as specidfied in the installation manual for the stove.

Wood stoves and stove venting are fairly common sources of fires. If your insurance company determines you didn't install the stove properly, they may refuse to pay out on a claim.

Just not worth it ---- entirely apart from the safety risk you create for those licving in your home.
