Which VHB Tape for Mounting Solar Panels

In my searches, I'm aware that one should use VHB tape and sikaflex to secure solar panels. I'm also aware that there's various types of VHB tape.

Can someone point me to the specific type of VHB tape I should be using?

A link to Amazon would even be better!

I'm going with the Renogy 200W (2x 100W) panel kit with their included mounts.

AM Solar recommends 3M VHB 4950. Search AirForums and you'll find recommendations on the prep and sealant that's recommended.
