In a word: "no". :) There are a number of companies selling kits which say “3M 300-LSE” on them, but 300-LSE is not the name of a specific 3M product – it is actually the name of an entire line of different 3M products. The adhesive we use was selected after careful in-house testing, followed by a meeting with 3M engineers, followed by more testing. We typically see our customers’ return rates for screen lifting drop to 0 after switching to our adhesive.
We make our kits in the U.S.A. More specifically, we make them in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The 3M adhesive we use is also manufactured right here in Minnesota - less than 50 miles away from us, in fact. It gets pretty frigid in February, but Minneapolis has a vibrant arts and technology scene, so we kinda like it here.
Our adhesive is significantly thicker than original/black/OEM iPad adhesive. This helps overcome the subtle bends and irregularities that appear in an iPad’s frame when it gets dropped. Our kits also cover much more surface area than the original design, which further strengthens the bond.
Our adhesive is significantly thicker than Red Tape, which helps provide a cushion to overcome specks of debris or irregularities in the device's frame. The adhesive we use also provides a stronger overall bond for a given surface area.
