iPad 3 repair finished does the new glue need heat treatment?

Hi I bought your kit from the Australian shop , great service from them. Repair went fine. but the guide needs some more information:

the glue under the white tape ? is it heat reactive like the original does it need to be heated using the iOpener

or is it contact adhesive that needs time and /or pressure to set?

I appreciate the components may have changed since the video and guide was made so a simple note in the last slide would help all your customers

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The adhesives on screens do not need heat treatment to set.

Heat is used to weaken adhesives when prying screens up.
