I am looking for the foam tape used to cover the ensolite seams on the walls of my Boler. I tried different tapes but they won't hold on the ensolite.

There are a lot of posts on specific tapes available, you'll find them using the search engine. 3M Brand comes to mind.

I found that filling he seams with caulking first gave the tape more to hold onto. Don't stretch the tape around curves either, better to compress it. I painted both the tape and ensolite after installing.

Some members have had good success with caulking alone. Fill the gap and use a damp paper towel, scrunched up to dab the wet caulk, I guess it provides enough of a texture the seams are nearly invisible because they're similar to the ensolite.
