Glass only refurbish on iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s


I have been replacing iPhone screens for some time now but have recently taking up refurbishing broken screens by separating the glass from the LCD/Digitizer. I am using refurbish shop quality equipment which includes; a 5-1 frame machine, 3-1 OCA/Polarizer Laminating machine and a 5-1 laminating and bubble remover machine.

I am very new to this process and have been teaching myself with youtube videos and trial and error. I must say I underestimated how many attempts it has taken me to dial in the process (youtube makes it look so easy lol).

I am at the point where I am comfortable with using the machines but with each attempt is generating more questions.

When using the method of separating the glass from the LCD am I suppose to use Anti Static Silver Conductive Paste on every repair? Please note I do totally remove the polarizer from the LCD and replace it with a new one.

From the videos I have watched, it looks like iPhone 5, 5c and 5s require a different placement of this anti-static paste than the iPhone 6.

Does anyone have experience with this and would like to offer some assistance.

Thank you!
