If you all are talking about the "tar-like" putty that adheres most
moisture/vapor barriers in most cars, you're looking
for 3M Strip-Calk, Part No. 051135-08578. This is the black stuff. There is a
"whit-ish" version also.
This stuff will not harden which is what you want so you can remove and
"re-stick" your moisture barrier several
times as you have to, over the years, do maintenance on door windows, electric
motors, regulators, etc.
Hope this help,
