Actually it is "duct"  tape.

Used to air seal the metal joints in a metal duct work system for heat 
and AC.

New building codes require a mastic paint be applied over all metal 
joints in the duct work system.
I guess it is an energy conservation issue, so the processed air does 
not leak into unintended spaces.
