so even though its black I have found some down here...sorry if I have missed it but can this work even though I cant confirm its the same quality as used here?

Christian, I found myself in the same position here in Brazil. I couldn't find butyl tape anywhere and at the time Mainsail didn't ship here. I ended up finding it through a Sika dealer (they are strong in Latin America and they have a dealer in El Salvador). The product is called Sika Lastomer (I forget which product number exactly, but look on their site- it's the pale beige tape clearly described as a butyl rubber based product). It is excellent stuff and you might be able to find it in El Salvador. I ended up having to buy a whole box (24 rolls!) as the local dealer couldn't order less, so if you ever head down to Brazil I have some for you!
