Question about adhesives for my iPod
I used the 3M 300LSE strips that came with my digitizer, but they were not strong enough. It does hold my ipod together, but it raised out of the case (sides are not flush).
What can I get that is stronger? Is it safe to use a spray-on adhesive such as this?
Would it be safe to use a liquid-based adhesive (not referring to like super glue)?
Again, I've already tried the 3M strips and they did NOT work well enough.
Well first there are few things we should make sure you are doing when replacing the glass.
The old adhesive should be cleaned off. Which usually means using an adhesive remover. The problem is that the adhesive remover residue (which is almost always left behind) will affect the adhesion of the new stuff. So it needs to be cleaned too.
I have found that IPA works very well for that. Then with new application 3M sticks really well.
Also, if it is cold where you are doing these repairs you will want to heat the assembled thing to about 100-120F and press it together while it cools. You shouldn't have any problems with adhesion after that.
