What to tape Typar with?

In the installation instructions they tell you to use Typar Tape.

I can't find the stuff anywhere near me at all and all the hardware stores who sell Typar haven't heard of Typar Tape.

I know most people use Tuck Tape. There is also a Tape called Hurricane Tape.

Is this just something that builders do on the cheap, or do these tapes start to peel off in a few years? Can I use either of these or should I order Typar Tape??? Is it worth it?

I would order typar tape. $12.99 a roll, (googled it) about the same price as Tyvek tape. You would be wise to use the product that is manufactured to be used with your particular brand of housewrap if you want it to perform as it was made to.
