Question Sealant for furnace intake/exhaust plate

What is the brand and product name for the putty like material that comes in rolls which is used behind the chrome furnace intake/exhaust plate to seal the plate to the exterior of the trailer? Where can this material be purchased?

I don't know if there is a brand name, I have just heard it refered to as putty tape. When I need it I go to my local rv place they have it in their parts department for about $5.00 a roll. One roll will do numerous projects.

Is this stuff sold as being suitable for the heat produced by the exhaust vent?

I don't have a chrome furnace intake/exhaust plate, only a stainless exhaust plate, and there was no sealant of any kind on it. There is what appears to be an asbestos "donut" gasket on the exhaust pipe flange on the furnace side of the wall, and it looks pretty sad.

If I had never been fortunate enough to discover this forum, I would have replaced the donut gasket with hi-temp RTV. But, the inside skin on the Overlander around the furnace flange is pretty well eat up with dissimilar metal corrosion, and RTV certainly would not make it any happier.

I have thought about wiping the corroded skin area with a top coat of JB Weld, and then using the hi-temp RTV on top of that. Is this putty tape the way to go, or is there a better solution?

Thanks,
Tom
