Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I would contact the manufacturer to find out what it is and how it ages before using anymore of it. Everything that is sticky and works for a while does not mean that it a good bedding compound. This stuff looks to be intended for a very limited lifetime. I believe the manufacturer says 6 month shelf life.

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Maine, this is one of the best how to posts I've read. I am about to rebed a lot of hardware on teak rails. Is butyl tape good on wood? Is it better to remove the hardware and finish the wood ... Then butyl or better on bare wood?

I had to remove the handrails on my boat due to leaking. I varnished them while they were off with a single coat on the bottom. I used the butyl to seal it up when putting it back on the boat and have left a tarp off since and don't see any leaks or other issues with it. I think the important part is having the compression between the hardware, wood and mounting surface.

In experience you are ALWAYS better to seal the underside of the wood. If you don't this is where moisture enters and begins to lift the finish. Some of the higher end boat builders epoxy seal the bottoms of teak applied above decks...

Butyl will work either way but if you have the wood off definitely seal the bottom...

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Sorry if this question has already been asked. I relocated a traveler track onto superfine nonskid. I'm trying to remove the residual buytl that has gotten onto the nonskid. I've used acetone soaked q-tips - but that only gets the butyl sitting on top of the nonskid. Any suggestions on removing the buytl sitting at the bottom of the fine nonskid?

Mineral Spirits does a better job than Acetone...

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Maine Sail, I received your Tape and used it on my windows that have been leaking for 4+ years. THANK YOU it really worked. They haven't leaked in 2 months so far. Everything else will be rebedded this winter for sure. Thanks again.

P.S. My brother works for the local RV dealer and yours is better than anything he could get.

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I've read at least 19 pages, sorry if this has been asked and answered.

First, FANTASTIC article Maine Sail, pure gold!

I was wondering if anyone in the tropics, have issues with butyl "running" a bit.
If so, what solutions have you come up with? Is butyl compatible with other caulks? Maybe caulk a perimeter thin bead of something like 4000uv to "skin" or form a barrier to the butyl? Crazy talk?

Why not get the black butyl? Is this due to tracking it around the boat?

Side note: I've used 3Ms take on butyl tape strip caulk(http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/mediawe...DS_08578_P.pdf ), I liked it, bought it from Bluewater ship store in Texas. Did very well but I only had the boat another year after that work. I will find out how well it stood up when i see the boat in a couple weeks, I haven't owned the boat in 13 years.

Again, sorry if this has been explained already. Great thread.

Good question, I'd like to see the answer. I applied lifecaulk polysulfide over butyl tape on my chainplates just this season and I'm not sure if that was smart yet or not. I didn't want to leave the butyl entirely exposed to UV/dirt etc.
