if you'd pick something with a lower thermal conductivity.... of all the metals you could have chose, you picked aluminum, which has the highest coefficient of thermal conductivity, meaning it'll change temp the fastest when heat is applied near it.

Mild steel or a piece of stainless the same shape/size should lower the temps some.

Okay thanks for the info!

So do you think i should just wrap the pipe?
wrapping the pipe will lower the thermal conductivity so it'll be closer to ambient temps. If cooler air temps are what you're looking for then wrap it to get them down a bit more.
