Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I will be bedding the wooden grab rails with Butyl from Maine Sail and this will be coated with Cetol.

My question is: Could Cetol harm the butyl? I am sure I will be recoating the wooden pieces many times over the years, and during recoat, some of the Cetol could go in the Butyl. I am wondering if whatever is in the product could slowly cause the Butyl to decay.

Thanks
