Where to buy UV glue in store?

Hey there!

I'm starting soon on a iPhone 5s glass only repair as the LCD is perfectly fine. I've made aware, many times, that it is a delicate operation and worst case is the screen snaps/bends ect.

While I'm confidant after repairing other small and large electroic devices, I don't know where to buy the glue in store. I really don't want to wait 2 weeks for a tiny 2oz. bottle $20 or more because of shipping and I also don't really have that time alotted. I got legs, I'd like to use them, %#*@ it.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hello.

Just a small question :

Why don't you just buy a new screen assembly, and sell the glass and broken screen to someone who is used to change the glass only ? It won't be much more expensive but sooo simpler.

I'm only in charge of the repair itself, not by what means. I've explained that it's much much quicker and overall less hassle, but my boss went with the 'cheaper' option despite the possible failure rate making the overall repair cost more.

When I do my own repairs, if the glass is glued to the LCD i just buy the whole part. This one though is through my employer >:| lol

I called and they said there was no such thing instock, would clear glass glue do the job in that case? Tape won't as that's not how its manufactured.
