@cdbrown2018 not exactly sure where your computer has that tape, but I am pretty sure that you are referring to "Kapton Tape". Kapton tape is an electrically insulating heat resistant tape and used an awful lot on Apple devices.

For the EMI shielding tape, you can use products like these ones. Just pick your size. Any good electronics store should be able to get it for you.

It covers things like the stand mount inside the case, bare wire from the camera, attaches the GPU cooler to the case, iFixit sometimes calls it EMI, bit I can't find that
