I'm looking for an alternative to the expensive table tennis glues that I can buy in New Zealand.

What is the price of the TT water based glues in NZ and for what quantity?
How many rubbers you glue annually?

You can try Liquid Latex for special FX makeup.
I've been using Lilatex Liquid Latex from Germany for two years.
https://lilatex.de/shop/artikel-nach-anwendung/formenbau/Creativ-Latex-113/

Is water based and smell (low ammonia content), viscosity and elasticity is similar to Revolution No.3 or Xiom Energy. I didn't see any significant differences between them.
And the price is around 10-13 € per 1 liter (33.8 oz.), based on viscosity.
But I don't know the prices of Liquid Latex in NZ or AU. You have to try look in local shops.

Edit:
Some time ago I created a video on which I remove liquid latex glue from rubber after 5-6 weeks of use.

It's not that expensive.

Donic Vario Clean 37mL. I bought this off Trade Me and have glued at least 6 sheets of rubbers. Probably only a quarter down.
$18+4 = $22.

If you are into very cheap stuff - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pro-30ml-Inorganic-Table-Tennis-Glue-for-Ping-Pong-Racket-Paddle-Bat-New-Proper/113676657984?hash=item1a77a82540:g:P9oAAOSwiolcgK7Z

Less than $5 NZD for a 30mL VOC free glue.
