What type of adhesives do apple use inside iPods?


I'm thinking about fixing my ipod, but what i want to know is, what type of adhesive/glue can i use to restick parts down? For example the ribbon that you have to peel off the Ipod Nano 4th gen's battery if you want to replace it.

it's only a little bit repair related - so i think it's ok to answer it

most companies are using: 3M 300LSE

since it took me less than a minute to find it on google - i will tell you how to find something like that

use the image search engine and search for parts that usually comes with those stuff - et voilà - you got the answer to that specific question ;-)

I've used the double-sided 3M tape mentioned above, and it just isn't strong enough to last over a long period of time. Unfortunately, I'm still looking for something better.
