The appearance of smartphones and phones with touchscreens has brought us a new problem called “broken glass.” Modern phones have become very light, and their weight is practically not visible in the pocket or hand; therefore, very often, their owners unwittingly drop them. As a result, protection glasses, screens are broken, carcasses are damaged or all together.
Replacing a broken touch glass is not an easy task. We can try to do to tip hammer and chisel (i.,e. with a hot iron), but considering that we are in the twenty-first century, it is much more practical and useful to use for this purpose a machine to separate the glass. In this magazine, we want to present to you the tool designed to separate the screens modules – screen separator.
Especially for our customers, the specialists of the Technical Support Department of All Spares have filmed a demonstration video, in which all the stages of the process of replacing a broken touch glass with the help of the SM-252 separator are shown. We hope that this video will answer your questions and concerns, and will help you use the SM-252 partition effectively.

Additional tools and accessories for the LCD separator
If you are a professional technician, you surely know that requests to replace a broken glass are quite frequent. To do it quickly and qualitatively, in addition to the separator, you will need some additional tools. Let’s see what tools and accessories are used during the process.
Thread (wire) to separate the glass
Thread to separate the glass is a wire made of an alloy of resistant metals. The thread is fragile and resistant at the same time – an excellent accessory for the separator. In order not to damage the module and protect your hands by handling the thread, it is recommended to use special antistatic gloves. Virtual store All Spares offers coils with the wire of 30 and 150 meters long, and also antistatic gloves.
Blade to remove residues of the adhesive
After removing the glass from the screen module, it is necessary to remove the residue from the adhesive. For this, we are going to use the glue solvent. We apply it on the whole surface, and with the help of a particular blade, we remove the residues of the adhesive, taking care not to damage the polarized film. In our shop, you can buy a set of 5 special blades in the Equipment section to repair the display module.
Templates for screen modules
Templates for the screen modules allow you to fix the LCD screen during the installation process of new touch glass. There are several types of templates, designed different brands and models of phones. Shop All Spares offers a wide assortment of templates for smartphones screen modules.
Rubber coated press roller is an auxiliary tool designed to press the glass and eliminate air bubbles. It allows evenly distributing the glue and removing air bubbles between the glass and the screen. At this time, our store can offer the push roller with handle, 70 mm.
This tool will not only help you to stick the glasses, but it will also be useful in other processes that involve the use of ultraviolet light. After gluing the glass to the LCD screen, it is necessary to dry the adhesive with the help of ultraviolet light. For this, place the screen module under an ultraviolet lamp for about 10 – 30 minutes (depending on the power of the lamp used). To dry the glue, All Spares can provide the ultraviolet lamps of 12, 20, and 36 W.
