Using Henry 208R (Wet Patch Roof Cement) to insulate 2x4's behind shower

I'm repairing a small section of drywall behind my shower. I was told by a Home Depot staff that I could use Henry 208R (Wet Patch Roof Cement) to insulate 2x4's behind the shower instead of hot tar and insulation paper. BTW, I don't have much room to work with unless I knock down section of the shower wall.
I was wondering if it's safe to use the Henry 208R inside the wall and would it be effective.

Thanks,

Jim

Welcome to the forums Jim!

Unfortunately, most of the time the clerks at the big box stores know very little about the products they sell

Tar won't insulate, it will waterproof but I don't think it's appropriate for interior use. Generally plastic is used as a vapor barrier behind tile/drywall.

Could you tell us a little more about your project? maybe supply a pic or 2
