Vinyl flooring in front of bath tub

I am getting ready to install a new vinyl floor in my bathroom. How can I insure that the flooring will stick, and not curl in front of the tub? The sheet of vinyl is going over concreat floor. so I won't be able to add 1/4 round unless I glue it. do you have any suggestions?

There are several makers of vinyl tub flashing.

Also called tub strip.

The tub is cast iron. What is the vinyl tub strip? Will it work for cast iron?

It's a piece of aluminum that is nailed to the floor before the vinyl is installed and the edge of the vinyl slips into the metal. It can't curl under a restrictive moulding.

What I'm talking about is not aluminum. It is rubber or vinyl.
It has a peel and stick installation. The bottom of the tub needs to be clean and cleaned again with alcohol.

What I've done before is purchase a piece of plastic 1/4 round moulding at Home Depot, cut it to the length of the tub and glue it at the base of the tub (to both the tub and floor). I use a panel and moulding adhesive designed for caulking guns. Works good, and looks nice too. The moulding can then be caulked around the edges and painted too, if so desired.
