I would recommend 3M all weather flashing tape.

3M all weather flashing tape is a good choice for exterior application. What you listed in your first post is fine for XPS interior application. Up here in Canada the equivalent is called Tuck Tape.

Interior, below grade, I'd use low expanding canned foam all around perimeter, then tape the seams, leaving a slight fold in middle for foam shrinkage. Exterior, allow for same- I'd tape over; mastic-mesh tape/backer rod/caulk, and flash the horizontal joints if your drainage plane w. WRB under the foamboard; http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...a-foam-shrinks
