pvc repair fabric

anyone here know where i can source some thinner pvc repair fabric as the stuff i have is 1mm thick on my verniers , and it is going to make repairing my aerotec floor much harder could do with something half as thick and more flexible tried ribshop, ibs & ribstore
if i have to go with the thick stuff not sure i will be able to get as good a job done as in nashers post, may not even be able to get it completely airtight as the leak goes right up to the wleded joint,
has anyone ever tried the flexible repair adhesives like sureseal or stormseal to get an intial seal or permanent seal , then if neccessary patching over the top with the 2 part adhesive and pvc patch are these flexible seal products any good?

RIBase
Contact Polar Bears in Launceston and buy a trilaminate patch - the stuff HD dry suits are made of. Should do teh trick

I am wondering the same thing. I have leaks along the seam in my floor as well underneath the webbing that holds the floor sections together. I have bought some of this SureSeal XXX - Google Search and will try it out on these hard to reach holes and let you know how I get on. For me if it works it will save a lot of hassle and if not, I will patch them as originally planned

thanks for the replies , would like to know how you get on with the suresealxxx as there used to be a similar product it was called pvx , when whe we had any thing form a beach ball to an inflatable boat we used it to repair and it was really good stuff
anything near a seam is always going to be difficult thats why i thought this maybe a good way to seal then apply a patch over the top same as nasher has done ,
i will look into the suitability of trilaminate as well

when do you intend the sureseal experiment? hope it works out well cause that would be ideal ,always wondered why no one has developed something like a liquid plastic for such repairs

Bought it today so depends on delivery. I am going to repair the small holes in the lateral walls of the floor tonight and will put this stuff on the seam holes the day it arrives, hopefully over the weekend. I will post as soon as it goes on!
