That's more like what I'm referring to. Looks very thin too. Oh well, the stuff I have will work just fine. It's just more time-consuming to use.

Permatite® 250-H Butyl Tape
High Cross Linked And Modified Butyl Rubber Compound
Developed for maximum adhesion to most all surfaces, Permatite 250-H Tapes exhibit excellent performance in areas where joint movement, expansion and contraction are present. When specialty sizes are required, Permatite can provide unlimited profiles in extruded tapes. Permatite's extruded tapes are designed to form an air and water tight seal while conforming to irregular surfaces. Ease in application make 250-H extrusions result in instant cost and labor savings.

I've never found the stuff at a marine store. Try glass repair shops, try RV dealerships, try small local hardware stores... that's where I've found the stuff pretty much.

copacabana Sailingdog, the ports are fastened with screws. The butyl is just to seal them. Silicone just doesn't seem to last... Any idea of where I could find butyl in another industry or application? Marine stores here don't seem to carry it. Thanks again and sorry for the hijack...

Stillraining I have some stuff that's twice as thick and Black you can have......never mind..

We use it to seal concrete septic tank lids down...Its so sticky you have to be careful pulling the 4" thick lids or you will break them.

Its about 3/4" square and when squished by the lid spreads out 3"...So one question what does say 120 degree surface do to this stuff?..I invision it flowing all over the place.

sailingdog This stuff isn't really the proper material for bedding portlights. Unless the portlights are also mechanically fastened in some manner, butyl tape isn't strong enough to hold them in place.

If tape is to thick put it between waxpaper and roll with rolling pin. Cut to the size you want.

josrulz Thanks Tempest. It's really no big deal. I have some of the thicker stuff that will work just fine. But that you for the offer!

I'll keep looking for a source of thinner stuff at the local RV shops. As previously posted, you don't need a lot, but I'll be doing some stuff like genoa tracks where the thinner stuff would be easier to work with. Still, no big deal to use what I have, just takes longer.
