Alternative Metal Roofing Installation Systems

Posted by StealthBond® on September 22, 2017 at 11:00 AM

Like apple pie and BBQ, StealthBond® is a true American original. Brought to you by the same innovative spirit that launched this great nation, the latest innovation in metal roof installation is today’s greatest alternative metal roofing solution. And we’re here to stay.

Before StealthBond®,  Concealed Adhesive systems for metal roofing were just a concept.  Our research and development team created the system with an original design based on  opportunity in the metal roofing marketplace.

The most significant leap in the industry happened just recently and it’s the StealthBond® System. Today, roofing professionals can use structural adhesive for metal roofing installations. The StealthBond® system allows  roofing contractors to install a metal roof without invasive screws.

Who says a nickel ain’t worth a dime? It’s time to say goodbye to the screw.

StealthBond® Inventor, Jim Horton, recognized  the need for an alternative to traditional  thru-fastened metal roofing systems. Roofing Contractors were looking for  an alternative metal roofing installation system that would eliminate the need for penetrating screws.

The StealthBondⓇ System: Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen

Installed exclusively by authorized installing dealers, the StealthBond® system is the first major patentable innovation in metal roofing since the screw! StealthBond® is  the first concealed adhesive system that uses structural adhesive technology. StealthBond®  totally eliminates the need for surface-penetrating screws.

The StealthBond® System is made up of 3 major components including the StealthConnector®, StealthBond® Adhesive and StealthBond® Metal Roofing Panels. StealthBond® is a system, not just an adhesive; however, the StealthBond® Adhesive featured in the system plays a huge part in eliminating fasteners.


The StealthConnector® is a durable metal strapping that is carefully installed across the roof decking. This lightweight strapping becomes the foundation for the StealthBond® Adhesive.

StealthBond® Adhesive

A specially formulated structural adhesive (StealthBond® Adhesive) is applied to the StealthConnector® and acts as the fastening method for the metal roofing panels. No screws!

StealthBond® Metal Roofing

Metal Roofing panels, available in different profiles, lay into the adhesive to adhere securely to the roof.
