Wicking CA into a paper body tube will make it stiffer . . . Unfortunately, it also makes it brittle . . . It seems to behave like a thin-walled Phenolic tube after being soaked with CA.I would coat all body tube surfaces that will be exposed to hot gasses with thin CA.
This will provide a layer of reinforcement, and non-flammable barrier for hot particles to bounce of.
My suggestion would be to thin down JB Weld with Acetone and "paint" it, thinly, into the areas that need protection from heat.
