Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

After getting some butyl from Maine Sail, I've pulled a stanchion and some of my chain plates. Mainly the ones the PO had buried in silicone. Suspecting there was a REASON why they had silly-cone all over them, I pulled them before we paint the deck and sure enough, not a spot of bedding. One I had bed with 4200 just after we got the boat and one was good and tight and had what appeared 4200 under it. The other two I pulled, checked for water (unbelievably they were dry), and rebedded with butyl per MS's instructions. I was pleased with the results. I'm confident they will stay dry for a long time. Adding pictures for the benefit of those who might need pics like I do!

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Sorry to bump an old thread, but after reading this post I'm a little confused.

I've explained my question here:
Confused - epoxy or sealant/tape? - The Hull Truth - Boating and Fishing Forum

But haven't had any replies as of today. Could someone on this forum (I'm new here) please help me out?

They are two different steps. The butyl is the sealant between deck and fitting. The Epoxy is to seal the core in case a fitting ever leaked. Most boats, like 98%, do not come from the factory with sealed cores where bolts pass through..

If you want to seal the core you do that first, then bed the fittings.

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

In the sikaflex documentation it recommends using a thin spacer when bedding items down to prevent all the sealent being squeezed out. Is this a good idea with butyl?

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Hello all,

Is Butyl bedding tape available in Australia? Is there an equivalent tape available locally? Thanks in advance.

Mark

Mark,

Bed-It Tape is made in the US and only distributed here, at the moment. It is a proprietary/custom formulation, manufactured specifically with properties for bedding deck hardware. Unfortunately the characteristics that make Bed-It Tape what it is are not available in any other product.

It can be shipped to any country but shipping does get a bit expensive. Some folks use freight forwarding services and claim to save some shipping cost. I have looked into a distributor down under but the cost to get the product there is cost prohibitive, it is fairly heavy..

Tapesonline.com.au sell it. Probaly not as good as maine sails but i've used it for my traveller, a hatch and the mooring cleat so far with good results. Blackwoods sell the same stuff too.

I had a look at their site and found a 'black Butyl Flashing Tape'. Is this what you used for your hatch? Was the process the same as described in this post? I'm installing a deck hatch in the near future and want to get it right! Thanks again

No it wasn't that one. It's this one:

Double Sided White Butly Tape

It's available in black also on the site.

I used the same processes as described in this thread. I doubled it over or applied two layers for the stuff that mounted over non skid, otherwise used a single layer. The stuff is more light grey than white, and is like a firm blu-tac. It has a fine nylon mesh matrix and trims easily with scissors.
