A deteriorating wood stove gasket can lead to a loss of stove efficiency and can lead to a reduction in quality of your home's air, by leaking both heat and combustion gases from the combustion chamber. Replacing your wood stove door gasket is easy! Gasket material comes in a variety of diameters, and you must choose both the right size of gasket rope and the appropriate gasket adhesive for your model of stove. Gaskets are made from graphite-impregnated fiberglass and come in both white and black, allowing them to match the finish of nearly any wood stove.

If double wall black stovepipe is being used, you will want to install the stovetop adapter on the stove flue collar and this wouldn't require any sealant. Actually, sealant isn't typically recommended or required for any of the interior stovepipe run. If sealant is used, you should use furnace cement and should not use a silicone based sealant as these products typically won't withstand the surface temperatures reached with a wood stove outside of a few high temperature silicone based products rated up to 7-800 degrees F. While the use of gasket rope wouldn't be necessary for the application in question, you'd want to use gasket-specific adhesive or gasket cement,
Trying to find the correct size door gasket for a Trailblazer 1300 wood stove. Any help would be appreciated
This stove is not manufactured by a company we offer products for. I recommend contacting this manufacturer to locate the correct size gasket. Once this information is confirmed, we do offer universal gasket rope that may be used with any wood stove.
