I am not quite sure what you are asking. But I must warn you that 
simply insulating the stove exhaust flue is not enough. Due to the 
insulation you could actually worsen the potential of fire risk. It is 
best to create a ventilated space between the actual stove pipe and the 
surrounding structure. The easiest way to do this is a double pipe one 
within the other. The air space between the two pipes must be well 
ventilated to prevent heat build up. The air space should be at least 
25mm all around.
