Sealing a gap in the wall with a copper heating pipe


Hi


Hope this is in the right subforum.



I have a copper heating pipe (hot water type) coming through the wall (sheet rock) in my apt, and I am trying to close up the hole best I can. I care nothing about aesthetics, as it will not be visible.


I am leary of using silicone, as even if I find out what the heat tolerance is, I do not know how hot the pipe gets. Anyone know? Or is the correct answer to that... it depends?


Any ideas on what I can use? something like either of these?

Thanks in advance.
