Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Hello everyone. The quality of information in this thread caused me to register on Sailnet. Many thanks.

I am seeking confirmation that "Duct Seal" sometimes known as "Duct Seal Putty" is the same material as butyl tape but has the advantage of being more readily available for purchase and economical. Some of you may be familiar with duct seal as it often used to seal around electrical service entrance cables where they enter the meter housing.

I've used both butyl tape and duct seal in the past and they seem identical. The MSDS for duct seal lists the chemical family as "butyl rubber composite" which sounds promising?
