OT - Fire proof baffle

Morning all,
With you all being so quiet (Christmas shopping?) I thought I would post an off topic question :)
In our workshop we have a waste oil boiler to heat the large space and in it there is a baffle that directs the flow from the burners to a heater matrix - the hot air then passes over the baffle and up the chimney.
The baffle is supposed to be removable for clearing ash.
Now the problem is that th baffle made from mild steel is disintegrating - we will have to make up a new one, but would like it to last a little longer.
One thought is to get some sort of asbestos or ceramic tile, cut it to shape and then stick it onto the baffle.
Any one hear with additional suggestions and/or recommendations for a fire proof adhesive?
Regards,

Stainless steel? - it's not very easy to cut but if it's small enough a
stainless stockholder might have an off-cut near the size, I have used
stainless cutting discs for trimming. Can't think of anything usable on the
ceramic side that you could cut, would resist the heat and be thin enough.

Hi Malcolm,
I'll look in to stainless steel, although thickness isn't really an issue - the previous baffle was made of quarter inch steel plate.
