Sikaflex 512, 521 and 552, All state ok for mounting solar panel brackets, any advice regarding the most appropriate one to use would be most welcome.

I used Sikaflex 292i twice the strength of 512 but it's more expensive, bought it from a place in Norwich,
about £20 delivered.

For my current conversion I have used Sikaflex EBT to fix the solar panel although I always use mechanical fixings as well being a disbelieving type.

Sikaflex EBT is aimed at the building trade but the fact sheets from Sika indicate that it is suitable for roof tiles, shop fittings etc. so I thought I would give it a try. Fact sheets are available at https://www.sealantsandtoolsdirect....eige_brown_black_grey_white_clear_P26598.html . Screwfix sell it at £7.39 for a 300ml cartridge, colours available are black, white, beige, brown, clear and grey although I don't think Screwfix have all colours.

What wrong with good old fashioned mechanical fixings. I find a lump hammer 6" clout nail very effective. :cautious:

I stuck 3 x 100W solar panels onto the top of our MH using Sikaflex 512
At the time i also stuck two "test" pieces of plate metal together and after a few days i tried to separate them apart ,, they ended up going to the bin after i was unable to get them apart.
its good gear for less than £11
