We seem to be having a mental block here.
I did not read, in the description of the link that you posted, that the tape was fabric.
The picture that you posted earlier was of fabric mesh tape, that had been painted with an elastomeric coating (mastic).

I don't know what material is made this tape, but the texture seems to be a fabric.... so I'm asking because I know fiberglass grid or paper.

Doesn't look like fabric?

The tape from grainger is foam tape. That stuff is a little nicer than truck stock.

That grey stuff is high velocity duct sealant, also known as mastic #9. Its made to seal metal ducts. The fabric tape is laid down on the material to help spread the mastic across the surface, and act as a firmament for the sealed joint.

Where I can buy this fabric tape? Supply house doesn't have it. Any online place?

We use Hardcast brand tape and mastic (two part sealing system) for underground duct.

http://www.hardcast.com/

For anything above ground we use regular duct sealant (ProSeal by DuctMate) applied with a 3" chip brush or fingers.
