  1. How to Apply Custom-cut Adhesive Strips, Identify the adhesive strips: 步骤 1 中的图像 1,1
    • Look over your pre-cut adhesive strips and figure out what they are used for.

    • Here are some common adhesives used in a phone repair, and examples of what they may look like:

    • Screen or back cover adhesives—usually the shape of the device

    • Back cover support adhesives—these will match the contours of components pressed against the back cover

    • Battery adhesives—normally a rectangular perimeter roughly the shape of the phone's battery

    • Component adhesives—they will be contoured to match the various components such as cameras and fingerprint sensors they are designed for

    • You usually want to apply the screen or back cover adhesives last. Be sure to apply all component adhesives beforehand, and if possible, test your repair before sealing up the device.

    • To ensure a good adhesive bond, both your device and part need to be thoroughly cleaned. This may take some time, but the results are worth the effort.

    • Remove large chunks of adhesives with your fingers, spudger, plastic opening tool, or tweezers.

    • Don't use metal tools if you're cleaning display panels or glass covers, as the tools may scratch the surface.

    • Use adhesive remover or isopropyl alcohol (>70%) to remove residue from metal surfaces. Wipe in one direction with a lint-free cloth or coffee filter until all the adhesive residue is gone.

    • While isopropyl alcohol is generally safe to use on electronics, they will dissolve certain foam adhesives. Be careful to contain the alcohol when cleaning.

    • Allow the alcohol to completely evaporate from the device before reassembly.

  3. How to Apply Custom-cut Adhesive Strips, Orient the adhesives: 步骤 3 中的图像 1,3 How to Apply Custom-cut Adhesive Strips, Orient the adhesives: 步骤 3 中的图像 2,3 How to Apply Custom-cut Adhesive Strips, Orient the adhesives: 步骤 3 中的图像 3,3
    • Custom-cut adhesive strips are shaped such that they install onto a device in only one way. When orienting your adhesive, look for distinct cutouts or markings that hint at how to place the adhesive:

    • Cutouts for components or liner pull-tabs in the frame

    • Alignment markings outlining the desired position

    • Holes for spring contacts or cameras

    • Most adhesive strips will have a neutral/clear liner covering one side and a colored liner covering the other. You'll be peeling the neutral/clear liner first and applying the exposed adhesive to its corresponding surface.

    • For example, if your back cover adhesive's clear liner faces the phone frame, you'll stick the adhesive strip to the frame first. If the clear liner faces the back cover, you'll stick the strip to the cover first.

    • If the adhesive comes in pieces, match each piece to the device by its contours and set them next to your device.

    • To ease the process of removing liners without losing alignment, you can align the strip to its intended position on the device, then tape one edge down to hold the strip in place.

    • Once you have a good idea how the adhesive strip fits on the surface, peel the neutral/clear liner off.

    • If you're applying a back cover or screen adhesive and it comes with extra material in the center, you may need to remove it before applying the adhesive.

    • Carefully peel away the center portion of both the liner and adhesive layers, starting with the cutout (if present).

    • Peel off and discard the remaining neutral/clear liner, exposing the adhesive underneath.

    • Be very careful as you align the adhesive! The adhesive is very sticky and deforms easily. Once it touches a surface, you can't reposition it—you'll likely need to start over with a new strip.

    • As you position the adhesive, look for alignment holes that line up with physical holes in the frame of your device.

    • Some adhesives feature unique cutouts in the corners that reflect holes or features in the frame.

    • Hold the exposed strip by its tabs and carefully line up a long edge of the adhesive to the edge of the device.

    • Set the adhesive onto the surface and press it firmly onto the surface with your fingers.

    • Peel away the colored liner from the adhesive strip to expose the remaining adhesive side.

    • Hold the part to your device firmly for 20–30 seconds.

    • Once you've installed your part or sealed up your device, you can strengthen the bond by heating up the adhesive.

    • Soft adhesives, which are usually messy and hard to clean, benefit from a reheat.

    • Harder adhesives that resemble tape may not benefit as much, but the heat can help the adhesive fill in gaps.

    • Use a hair dryer, iOpener, or heat gun to lightly heat the part or closed device in the areas where the new adhesive was applied.

    • Follow the remaining steps if you're securing a new screen or back cover.

    • If your device has an uneven surface (often a camera bump), skip to the next step.

    • Lay your device on a flat surface and stack heavy objects on it. Multiple large books work well.

    • Keep the objects stacked on your device for at least a few hours to allow the adhesive to settle and bond. Ideally, leave them in place overnight.

    • Most modern phones and tablets have prominent protrusions around the cameras. If you're securing a new screen or back cover, you must account for these uneven surfaces.

    • The remaining steps show three ways to apply even pressure across the entire device.

    • If your device came in a box that has cutouts for the protrusions in the back cover, use it to allow the device to sit flat.

    • Place your device in the box so it sits with even pressure all around the back cover.

    • Stack heavy objects on the device and leave them in place for at least a few hours to allow the adhesive to settle. Ideally, leave them in place overnight.

    • Alternatively, you can stack small objects around the back to level out the height of the cameras.

    • Lay strips of tape around the perimeter of your device to protect it from scratches.

    • Stack coins or similar objects around the perimeter so they're roughly equal to the height of the protrusions in the back cover.

    • Place heavy objects, such as multiple books, on top of the coins and leave them for a few hours. Don't use any valuable books, as the coins might leave an impression.

结论

If properly applied, the adhesive should work reliably for a long time.

The repair may not restore the device’s water resistance. Be careful not to expose the device to liquids.

Diese Anleitung sollte im Akku-Tausch Tutorial verlinkt sein und auch in der Produktbeschreibung. Ich habe diesen Artikel erst gefunden, nachdem ich die Rückseite schon befestigt hatte (zum Glück richtig).

Although obvious to anyone who has used this type of strip, I didn't realize it until my first experience gluing a screen into my phone: the adhesive is ONLY the black goo attached to the strips. Once you peel off the clear side, place the strip and then peel off the coloured side, all that's left is the black goo, hopefully exactly where it needs to be. Mine could be carefully re-aligned with tweezers as necessary before setting the screen into place.

What's the popular recommendation regarding how long to leave weight on these pre-cut adhesive strips?
It merely says 'a few hours'?
Is it okay to check on it or is it like opening the oven door?

Eldon - 回复

It's okay to check, and 2 hours is usualy plenty enough.

If you have any OLED display, DO NOT put books on it!!! Unlike LCDs, some Hard OLEDs cannot handle the pressure. If you have bought a display from ifixit they will also not warranty it and consider it user damage!!! That last section need to put in a warning for OLEDs.
