Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

there is also a product out there used in the construction trade for lining window and door openings comes in wider rolls. I've used this for sound dampening as well as sealing
for sound dampening I glue heavy aluminum foil over it to line the walls in my engine room
for sealing/gasket application I like it as it is one continuous sheet. again use you own judgement which product is best for your application
also a good primer for butyl is to paint a thin coat of contact cement (use the good exterior stuff not the water based or interior stuff)
