    I have had cases where the paint was blacked under a flexible solar panel glued onto a caravan roof. The heat was enough for the Sikaflex to release allowing the panels to blow off and only the cables holding the panels to the caravan.

    When installing the panel and Thermoclear, you can't glue them, they need to be free floating and the method we used is 6 x 3mm thick aluminium square with a 4mm counter sunk screw threaded up from the underside, then glued to the roof. The 4mm screws pass through the thermoclear and the eyelet in the panel with a piece of thread tapped aluminium to tighten down against the panel, then a lock nut to stop it spinning undone.
