The clear if there is no stress.
The black if there is.

Both are beyond adequate.
They are the strongest best tapes I have, and I have a BUNCH.
The black is quite pretty, like carbon fiber.

I have both of them here at the behemoth.

You can use Drywall tape, the plastic screen type and skim it with type1 silicone just as if you were skimming with Drywall mud.
This is what I did on the toy hauler. It's a process.

But
A new canopy is surprisingly well priced and easy to replace.
Any tape except the silicone is gonna bleed and shift in the heat.

EeBlack would be best.
It's crosswoven and doesn't stretch or skew beyond minimally.

The clear is quite stretchy which is an attribute unto itself.

Warm shady day application.
You'll want a burnisher of some sort and a backer while rolling it on tight.
A metal drinking container is an excellent burnishing (rubbing with great verve)tool.
They usually have all the edges and angles you'll need.
The side of A harbor freight rubber hammer's head works well also and has a handy handle.
