Solar installation

As industries move towards green energy, and with our focus on sustainability, Scott Bader’s Crestabond structural adhesives have been developed to provide market leading strength for bonding solar panels to roof structures, transforming roofs to solar power plants generating green electricity.

Solar panels bonded to roofs with Crestabond structural adhesives can withstand wind loads 3 times higher than a typical typhoon!

This market leading strength eliminates the need for mechanical fixings, savings costs and improving water tightness

Supplied globally, Crestabond primerless MMA structural adhesives bond both traditional glass faced solar panels and flexible solar panels to roof structures on houses, commercial buildings, recreational vehicles and more.


Click below to hear from Scott Bader’s solar PV expert, Andrew Harvey, on the improvements structural adhesives bring to solar installation and how they should be used for optimum installation.

Glass faced solar panel bonding

Scott Bader’s Crestabond M7 series of structural adhesives are recommended for bonding the aluminium rails or brackets to roof structures for mounting glass faced solar panels.

The Crestabond M7 series can be used to bond to a variety of roof substrates including PVC single ply membranes, metal and plastisol coated corrugated steel roofs.

A major benefit of using Crestabond structural adhesives is they eliminate the need for mechanical fixings that create holes in the roof, thus vastly improving water tightness. They also significantly reduce installation time.

Lightweight flexible solar panel bonding

For bonding lightweight flexible solar panels to roof structures, Scott Bader’s Crestabond M7 series and M1 series are recommended. Crestabond structural adhesives achieve a high strength and durable bond to metal, PVC plastisol coated corrugated roofing and GRP substrates.

Bonding flexible solar panels with Crestabond structural adhesives not only improves the aesthetics, they also save weight and reduce the cost as there is no need for brackets or mechanical fixings. Furthermore, water tightness is maintained as no holes are made in the roof structure.

Flexible solar panels are around 80% lighter than traditional glass faced solar panels.
