Is there a possibility to change front glass with LOCA?

Is there a possibility to change the front glass Google Pixel 3 by the help of LOCA UV glue, instead OCA glue?

I’ve bought a LOCA glue, LCD separator.. and now thinking about, which is better: 0.03mm or 0.05mm tungsten wire for separation is better? In the end, when i’ll separate the cracked glass, can i apply a LOCA glue on the POLED matrix to attach a new glass? Looking forward for your answers!

I would go with the thinner wire because OLED is extremely fragile and it’s very difficult to do glass only repairs on OLED panels unless you’ve got the proper tools. Just today I decided to attempt a glass only repair on an s9 plus display I had on hand and ended up damaging the OLED panel. I was using a razor blade but I learned that prying up on the glass made it worse.

As i understood, prying up must be done only with the help of OCA film… its safer…
