    Need to seal gaps around copper pipe that is coming out of a dry wall.. Looking for a type of silicone / caulk that would do the job without corroding copper pipe..

    Any brand recommendation, or type that I can grab from Lowe's or HD?

    Thanks!

    You can buy a split ring escutcheon that will go around your pipe and cover any opening.. Looks nicer that caulking. split ring esc.png

    At work we use red fire caulking I think high heat silicone will work obviously it's for firestopping if you want something else I think any caulking would do

    Thank you for the reply’s. I ended up getting GE silicone 2 caulk for its neutral curing.
