Sheathing Tape Wont Stick to EPS?

I got some free EPS sheets from my buddy who does SIP houses. The EPS is unfaced and I am putting them against my basement walls inside.

The problem I am having is the red sheathing tape I bought isn't sticking to them. What's the deal? Does sheathing tape not stick to this stuff? If so, what are my other options? Can I get a couple cans of right stuff and just spray the gaps?

How clean are the sheets? Sheathing tape won't stick to dirt and oil. How thick are the sheets?
