What is the best insulating wrap for a fireplace pipe?


Answer by  jeyR (264)

Try Fryewrap by Unifrax is extremely popular and good for insulating a fireplace pipe or even a chimney. Their products are fire and temperature proof. So they must be safe.

I've seen fiberglass in some DIY kits to insulate fireplace and chimney pipes. It saves money, but make sure you follow instructions and get an expert to check it after you're done.

Fibreglass??!!! Won't that stuff just melt and wreck the whole fireplace. i don;t think I'll be able to stand the smell they give out too!  add a comment

notanexpert - fiberglass is used mainly in cold pipes to prevent dripping, but I guess there must be some special grade of fiberglass that is very heat resistant too. But, I'd never try a DIY for hot pipes with fiberglass!  add a comment

I've heard that zonolite is great for wrapping a fireplace pipe. its a good insulator and quite safe in most situations.
