Not the PVC Lloyd linked or the surrounds Dogpatch mentioned.
But those are an option too.
Think Terry is onto what I was referring to.
About 1/8" ( 48"x 96" sheets), bumpy on one side and smooth on the other. Very flexible.
I remember using mastic or construction adhesive with the small edge on a notched trowel to attach. 3M 5200 to seal the joints.

They probably discontinued it ! That happens to a lot of things that I like........

Sounds like you are talking of FRP. Fiber-reinforced plastic.

Good Afternoon, Bap, yup, That's what I figured if the tub don't work I can replace it. Dogpatch, thanks for the info, I just haven't found a surround that I can fit where its got to go, (other than an RV one). Bill, if I could send it I would, not that we have got alot, just enough, temps have been great 60,s at night low 80's during the day, they say next week could be a few 90's. Popeye, yup I know what you mean it's FRP panels, Ron, got it too. and Lloyd has a link to it . Jay, Thanks! doing some little things today, tying up some loose ends.

Those panels are used for commercial kitchen walls and freezers. Water proof yes, a bit of a bugger to keep clean in a bath area.

Just my opinion.

Terry,

Here is a link to the one I refer to. It's a 3 piece. You can cut the center any size you want. The two end panels can be cut at the outside edge to make any depth. They overlap the center panel at the inside corner. This one comes with a center lower shelf.

Worth considering! And reasonable!

Does it look like it will fit to your application and need Terry?
It's the same product as used in the Neo-Angle showers sold everywhere.

When I'd install them, we would put a trim around for a finished look. On some I have put a 1-9/16 beveled casing over top and painted it.
I've also butted a single row of tile against the edge and caulked it. Although, you'd likely have to grout the tile.
You can also used a laminate "J" moulding around the outer edge for a thinner clean look. Depends what you want.
