However the 'interesting' results are all clothes which use the fabric
backed stretch PVC material which is not what I want.
I did do quite a lot of searching before asking here, much of the
problem is the 'noise' caused by kinky black PVC clothes and, rather
to my surprise, by vinyl stickers for vehicles. In addition one tends
to get a lot of hits for parcel wrapping film.
As I said you *can* get very stretchy PVC/Vinyl, in among the other
'not what I want' hits I came across quite a few for vinyl gloves,
mostly from medical suppliers. I have actually bought some vinyl
gloves (for protecting my hands from paint stripper) and they really
are very stretchy.
Pond liner material is easily obtained in sheets from various
suppliers, a quick gander at some suppliers does suggest though the
qualities of stretchiness you are after may be difficult to find with
PVC and advise use of EPDM or Butyl where liners have to stretched in
a pond to line it tidily.
Your worries about glues not withstanding these places do sell
adhesives to repair such materials and the joints have to be water
The last time someone asked, I suggested evostik contact adhesive, when
I tried it using some offcuts left from when I did my roof it stuck, but
not very well.
The epdm came with some tins of primer to use before glueing, which
presumably 'breaks through' the low surface energy and lets the glue get
Unfortunately the primer is not the sort of stuff you can keep around,
it had a short shelf life and dire warnings not to open it until you
were ready to use it as it would go off to a useless gel within 24 hours.
Exactly the problem, it's relatively easy to find non-stretchy PVC
sheet but stretcy is another matter. It *can* be made because you can
get very stretchy PVC gloves but I can't find a source of simple,
stretchy sheet. I guess it's because it doesn't find many (any?) uses
so no one makes or sells it - pity.
