Butyl Tape is an off-white, nonhardening elastic butyl based material which is great for bedding applications on boats. Use this Trimmable Butyl Tape to seal out water when drilling screw holes for bimini and dodger frame fittings, snaps, awning track installation, stanchions and much more.
Butyl tape provides excellent sealing adhesion to any type of metal, wood, concrete, glass, plastics, fiberglass and porous surfaces. Can be used under moldings; around windows, doors and vents, butyl can be trimmed easily with any stiff, pointed non-scratching object.
Butyl tape increases in adhesion with age after it is applied. It can be pressed and formed to obtain a water- and airtight seal. Recommended temperatures for application are between -30F and 200F (for best results apply at room temperature on dry materials).
