What Adhesive or Glue is used to adhere Glass to Frame?
Hello fellow Fixers!
This question has been on my mind for years now I have yet to find an answer so I have come here to gather like minded people to find a solution.
What I am running into is screens coming loose from the frame of the screen its self (not the frame or casing of the iPhone).
A lot of my parts have been coming back from costumers with the screen coming up or loose. Mainly on iPhone 5S, 5C, and 5. But sometimes even on 4S and 4.
I am wanting to find some type of adhesive that is redly available on amazon or ebay or even local stores such as walmart or lowes.
Basically I need something that is exactly what Apple uses which I know is probably a protected patent but there should be something close out there. Something that is in a Gel form so it is easily controllable and only goes where you want it to go. Bonds quickly at around 15 seconds. But then once it dries is flexible like silicone.
I have been using Loctites Gel Control super glue which is great as far as control and bonding quickly, but it can damage the iPhone. I have seen it to where the glue will crack and it either becomes un-bonded again, or the glass gives before the glue and cracks the glass, or pulls the paint off underneath.
This needs to be solved not only for screens coming back defective so that we can provide a proper adhesive, but would also be great to find for those shops doing a "Glass only" replacement and needs to re-adhere the frame to the Glass, Digitizer, LCD assembly after curing the UV Glue.
Okay okay, I'm probably rambling at this point but you get the idea. Any feedback would be great.
Is this a good question?
