I have to replace a back on my Huawei and the youtube video uses a epoxy resin glue called b-7000 Is there a alternative one can get to use in NZ?

Not the NZ-source alternative you are looking for but looks like you could get it from Aliexpress:

Thanks yes I have some on order from aliexpress but its 3-4 weeks wait as usual

getting glue through Ch & then NZ customs ....
If detected at the border (or at the courier depot), it will be confiscated .
It might get through, it might not .  :-) 

 


Dont laugh, Ive had paint touch up pens confiscated at the CH border

a recent thread on here implied ducktape might be a good alternative......

What's special about B-7000? The TM page describes it as "Multi Purpose".

I can tell you that B-7000 glue is almost useless T-7000 is equally crap for this type of job - while initially it will glue your back glass onto your phone it will start separating over time (sometimes very shortly after the job is done)

NZ Customs will notify (or they used to) . Its unlikey to happen at the NZ end , they dont have the manpower to check parcels  :-)
It does happen, but rarely.
To make it worse , NZ customs will confiscate the whole package incl non-restricted items , you loose the lot.
I cant imagine couriers having time to check parcels for restricted items .

 

CH customs & couriers dont notify buyers. If lucky, there may be something in the tracking info, usually not .
Ive had plenty of parcels confiscated at the CH border .  Usually batts , but also glue & paint pens. I even had a package confiscated because they thought it might have a battery (it didnt ) .
They just never leave Ch and disappear with no further tracking updates  .
Only once did a Ch seller let me know it had been returned to sender.

 

 

 

If its just a $10 tube of glue, just roll the dice & order it .   :-)

The glue restriction seems to fall into the if it is a hazardous substances category but does that automatically make all glues hazardous? You can buy the likes of Araldite and superglue at supermarkets with no restrictions. That hardly seems the mark of a dangerous product.

From Aliexpress, I ordered a couple of syringes of conductive adhesive which were opened and checked by NZ Customs... they got delivered.

 

Also from Aliexpress, 3 orders of Lithium coin cells (CR1616), 2 orders got thru, largest order arrived in NZ and has never been delivered - no notification for confiscation.

 

edit ...electrically conductive adhesive...
