The Solarium 3D plans include a listing for "high temperature tape" with no further info.  I think it would be good to elaborate on this description as it has proven vague when I've gone on my RMH materials scavenger hunt.

This is the most recent post showing up in my search for high temperature or silicone tape. The local fleet store had some tape rated to 350* (I forget the UL number it carried), and I think some other that was slightly higher. An Amazon search pulls something up that claims 1020*F tolerance (the military stuff?), but I've found that on very, very rare occasions marketing info on Amazon should not be trusted. Anyone with helpful experience to share...?

I believe the tape they use is 3m high temp tape. I do not have experience using it. However I believe it would be real easy to cut your hand on the tape. Wear gloves. https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/p/d/cbgnaw011285/

300 is ideal.  350 would make me think about changing the design.  400 definitely requires a change in design.
I've read about this kind of thing at the checkout counter. That's where I met this tiny ad:
