After alot of research I think I figured out what Bob was
using. I am posting as reference.
What Bob was using was EPDM rubber. EPDM was mainly designed for
industrial built-up flat roofs. The manufacturer of EPDM will
not sell to do-it-yourselfers, only to authorized EPDM roof
installers(I guess the manufacturer doesn't want to get a bad
reputation due to bad DIY installation.) So you must find a
roofer which is authorized, which means that it will be an
expensive roof solution.
As luck would have it the very same EPDM rubber is also the
most popular DIY pond liner. TetraPond being the biggest name.
I got it from the local TetraPond supplier for 99 cents a sq ft.

I used mineral spirits to clean the EPDM and basic rubber contact
cement to glue it down.
