    The dealer where i purchased my stove had all his stoves wrapped with this tape. It is all aluminum tape, He showed me how they did it and all the taped stove exhausts looked good. The tape was still shiny except for some that had seen the weather on the outside of the piping. He told me to seal with RV silcone (high temp) and then cover all joints with the alum tape. The only issue with the tape is if you want to take apart the pipe sections then you have to cut the and remove the tape wich is really simple.

    This is what my manual says: see below.

    ATTENTION: We strongly recommend using a battery backup system if the stove is
    installed using horizontal venting only. This prevents any smoke from entering your home
    in the event of a power failure.

    1. PL vent may be installed directly through a combustible wall, ceiling or roof according to PL
    vent manufacturer’s instructions. (See Figures 2 and 3).
    2. The PL vent system must be properly sealed and secured as per PL vent manufacturer’s
    specifications. An airtight seal is necessary in connecting the vent to the stove. Using a PL Vent
    pipe adapter, secure the PL vent with at least three sheet metal screws and high temperature
    silicone adhesive, (RTV), or metal tape at each joint.Page 9
