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,

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.

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I have a question that didn't come up on the searches too well.. I have rebed my diesel fuel fill deck fittings and I'm not sure what to use. I know to use butyl for things that get stressed like life line sanctions, cleats, etc. But these are pretty static pieces and really only see temperature changed. I was thinking something like 4200 or possibly boat life caulk? I don't want them to move nor do I plan on removing them anytime soon since I'm changing the hoses as well. I just figured the butyl will be affected by the diesel fuel.

Anyone have any suggestions on this?

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

Maine Sail,
Sorry to comment on a 4 yr old post, but I have to thank you for all the information you provided on bedding with butyl tape. I am new to sailing and rebedding deck fittings was my first DIY project. I am very happy with the results.

Great information and easy to follow instructions.

Sorry to the group, I would have sent an PM but I do not have enough posts yet.

Butyl tape would dissolve in contact with diesel and polyurethane will also eventually turn to mush. However, in this application it is only spillage that contacts the sealing compound so I would say that 4200 would be an adequate choice.

For applications in permanent contact with diesel fuel, nitrile rubber is the choice. This can also include nitrile impregnated cork gasket material. For total sealing on uneven surfaces the seal can be supplemented with gasket compounds like those made by Permatex that are resistant to diesel fuel.
