I see that TPO doesn't want a protectant so I guess I'll need to mask off the Eternabond.
Unless you purchased the EternaBond WS (WebSeal) type of tape, all other EternaBond tapes DO NOT need UV protection.
If you did purchase the WS tape, take it back and purchase the "RoofSeal" type.
Directly from the EternaBond web site...
"When using WB-Seal on areas that are exposed to sunlight, two coatings of EternaBond® UV Protector Sealer liquid (included in the Seam Repair Kits) is required. The installer can either paint over the sealer or tint it to match the exterior at a local paint store by mixing in the liquid tint coloring designed for latex paint -- starting at 75 percent less tint than required for latex paint.
All other EternaBond® tapes are UV protected and require no other coatings, but can be painted if so desired.
