Which Temperature on LCD Separators is free of risks?

Hello everybody.

I own a LCD separator machine and I wonder which temperature (in °C) is the best to seperate glass from LCD risk-free?

On some videos I see people using 80°C, in other videos I see 100°C or more.

I often heard that more than 80°C will damage the LCD, but is that true?

I have to ask somebody who is more experienced with using the LCD separator machine: Which LCDs of which phone-models can resist which temperature?

Can you say in general that iPhones resist higher temperatures than Samsung Galaxys or vice versa?

I am asking because the higher the temperature, the easier the separation. Not only separation between LCD and glass but separation between frame and glass (like on most Samsung Galaxys or most Sony Xperias)...

Thanks in advance!

visit us we some tips on how to do it , and we will give you all the right reasons why you should trust us when it comes to cellphone LCD replacement.


This is the most inappropriate AD I've seen.

Why would someone who invested in a separator get their device fixed by someone else?

Why do you think people come to To get their devices repaired by themselves not some careless service guy, bored of their job.

80 degrees is standard. More important than temperature is how long you leave the screens sitting on the plate. I wouldn't do more than 8min unless you are splitting the glass at the same time

From my point of view you should invest in liquid nitrogen machine. More and more people give up heating separator and choose freezing machine, it is much quicker and much more safe to the display.
