I need an adhesive to hold vinyl folded on itself to form a pocket to encase a metal rod, this will be done on all four sideds of the material so that it can be tensioned to a frame. The glue needs to be strong enough to hold the vinyl together under tension but with out melting or weakening the material. Any suggestions?

I can't offer you any real advice because I have never tried what you undertake.
All I can suggest do some testing on some scrap material. Over the years I have always been amazed at how good and strong liquid nails is. I have no idea if it will interact with your stuff, but it would be on my list of stuff to test, along with the contact glues, the type you let tack up on both parts and then stick together.

Hope this gives you some ideas.

I don't know about this application, but the adhesive used for PVC pipe should be good, I would think. I am also thinking about this as well, as I have a vinyl retractable screen, and want to put a bar along the bottom. I figured I could fold up the bottom, and use adhesive to stick it together. My wife recommends to sew the pocket in. She's probably right, but I don't know if I can sew a straight enough line, esp. with material this thick, and the tension need to be clean straight across.

Let me know if you find an adhesive that's suitable. I will also look, and pass along what I find.

Quick gel should work, although it might get expensive with that big of a project.

I would be worried that the holes from the sewing would cause the vinyl to tear under tension...

The answer is right at Home Depot! There is an adhesive that is specifically designed to bond vinyl to itself. It is vinyl shower pan adhesive, for splicing with a watertight seam.

I used it on my smooth vinyl screen for tab tensioning, and it worked PERFECTLY!! Very strong bond.
