iPad Mini 3 LTE Front Panel Replacement adhesive suggestion

There is no mention is using any adhesive during the installation of the new panel. I know that there are many different adhesives available for different purposes. I assume that some adhesive needs to be added. Please correct me if the original, softened, adhesive will remain and sufficient to properly hold the new panel, or provide some useful suggestions for what adhesive to use. For example: what about Tesa double-sided 4mm tape?

To do a proper repair, you should remove the old adhesive. Most replacement digitizers include adhesive strips already installed. IMHO, the adhesive that is pre-installed is not very good quality and the digitizer will generally start lifting with time.

If you keep the old adhesive, it will only work if it is still fairly intact. More often than not, much or most of it is removed along with the digitizers.

You also need different widths of tape to do a roper repair. If you are a shop, then getting rolls of Tesa Tape in varying widths is a good option. Otherwise, I would get pre-cut adhesive from a reputable supplier like BlowerTech Adhesives or TapeTemplates. For a one-off repair, removing the pre-installed adhesive on the digitizer and applying a pre-cut template is the preferred method.

You "point" to the iFixit replacement Front Glass product and indicate that you think that the quality of the adhesive supplied in the noted Front Glass replacement is "not very good quality". So you would prefer to NOT use the iFixit Front Glass product with its supplied adhesive - correct? You would remove the replacment product's adhesive with something else - correct?


Yeah, that's basically it. I have used iFixit digitizers and the quality is very good and the service/customer support is outstanding. I remove the pre-installed adhesive and install adhesive from BowlerTech. This is true regardless of where I have ordered digitizers.

This is my business so I only use the best parts I can find. If iFixit sold a digitizer without adhesive, that's what I would buy because it would save me the hassle of removing it. From an iFixit perspective, their main audience is DIY fixers so it makes sense to pre-install the adhesive...iPad repairs are already hard enough.
