I was wondering if anyone had ever used or recomended some type of adhesive to attach panels with in conjuction with screws. I was thinking of some type of construction adhesive to limit the number of fastners in a "R" type panel. I was thinking that the less the number of punctures the less chances of leaks in the future.

The screws are also for wind uplift. I have done repairs on metal roofs that did not have enough screws and the wind has torn panels off, leaving the screws in the deck.

Various adjesives have been experimented with over the years. However, the expansion and contraction rates of different materials in the roof assembly becomes a problem. Additionally, when the roof has to be removed, that could be an issue. Also, many adhesives are foams and those will age some over the years and could be a problem. Foams can also interfere with flashings that may have redundant water channels to carry rain water under the roof panels.

I was considering some of the polyurethane sealants/construction adhesives, they seem to be very tough if applied correctly. I would want to use it in the inner field of the panel and make sure the edges are well attached with screws.

I am probably not aware of anyone trying exactly what you state but I have expressed some concerns above.
