    You should be able to find clear (not BUFF) RTV silicone at your hearth shop, or an auto parts store...

    That's not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for "Gasket Cement" in buff, beige, clear would be okay too... :)

    Yes. You can buy rultand black or a tan version. Feels and rolls like clay that you tool into the joints. It's not a silicone RTV.

    I don't think that's the right stuff I'm asking about. Rutland doesn't make this stuff in "buff" or any other color other than black.
    Here's what I'm looking for, it doesn't matter to me which brand it is as long as it's gasket cement, 2000 degree tolerant, and
    no curing neccessary. http://www.rutland.com/productinfo/stove--gasket-cement.html

    The stuff you're describing sounds like "Mortar" or "Refractory Cement."

    It's a fine line. This stuff is the same as what's in the tube.

    http://www.rutland.com/productinfo/black-furnace-cement.html

    And this stuff is the brown version.

    http://www.rutland.com/productinfo/stovo®-stove-mortar.html

    All rated for 2000 but you don't specify your use so we can't say if one product is not suitable.

    I looked at the technical data sheets on both of those products. They're not the exact same product. And I don't
    think they are the same as "Gasket Cement." Both of your examples need heat-curing.

    But they do name their products in a confusing way, don't they...

    This is what I'm looking for, only in "Buff" or "Tan."
