Sounds like MiracleSeal, made by Revere Products in Cleveland, 216 573 7100.
Available in 2.5 inch wide rolls, in addition to the wide stuff.
Very similar to CoaxSeal and a lot cheaper.
I much prefer the self fusing siliconized tapes such as Plymouth Plysafe,
because they don't leave a total mess on the connector when you take it
apart. In some awkward places the CoaxSeal type product is the only way,
