I was wondering what you thought about using Butyl tape for a bedding compound?


You could, but this is mostly used for windows where they fit into the side of the cabin top. However in many cases the tape is too thick for many applications. Also if you are bedding down, say a windlass base or something large the Dolphinite is far better and much cheaper. It is hard to give very genneral advice without knowing what application you intend to use the tape for. The Dolphite can be spread with the trowel and you obviously cannot do this with a tape product which makes it on that basis alone unsuitable for many applications.
