Default Black Tar Looking Adhesive

Does anyone knows the name of the black tar looking adhesive on the window vapor barrier? I know 3M makes it and is sold for about $32, but I can't remember the name.

Butyl tape. You can find it at Oreilly. They keep it in the back so you have to ask for it.

Use Tarminator to clean the door metal of all the old sealant. Follow up with alcohol to remove the Tarminator.

Yeah, it’s called butyl tape, lol. They just call it by another name; Windo-Weld Ribbon Sealer

Thanks Brett for responding and sharing...what I was thinking of from 3M came in a tube like caulk...I'll try the Butyl tape since it appears cheaper as well as the tarminator.

You don’t want to caulk the vapor barrier in. Factory is butyl tape.

The stuff that comes in a tube works very well for exterior trim/ moldings.

And it doesn’t run like a lot epoxy and other adhesives.

I cannot remember the name of the stuff. I just remember that it comes in a calking tube. And it’s a black color.

It's not caulk...it just uses the tube like caulk does and is black. I'll get the butyl tape.

BMW sells it as a rolled-up strip. Much easier to apply than squeezing it out of a tube.

It's called Strip Calk. You can get it from your local auto body paint supply store. 3M part number 051135.-08578 (black). I'm not sure about the "." after the 5 in the part number.

Lots has been done to this E30 - including resealing the door vapor barriers. The 3M Strip Calk worked great.
