Replacing the Digitizer - What adhesive to use?

Long story short, I have scratched the plastic screen on my Nintendo Switch.

I discovered that there are replacement digitizers on eBay and Aliexpress available already. However, it seems that all of them do not come with adhesive preapplied.

Does anyone know what type of adhesive is used inside the Nintendo Switch that is glueing the digitizer onto the housing?

Thank you very much in advance!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I purchased a set off of Amazon that came with "tools" and a roll of 1mm double sided adhesive tape. You would just lay a strip down and then pull of the non stick side. Pretty easy to use. The tools is comes with are pretty useless though (bad screwdriver, and doesn't have tri-wing screwdriver).

Only 1 mm, isn't it too little ? Some recommend 3M but never precise the width.
