Today, we’ll be taking you through what exactly they are, why you would want one, and how to safely apply one on your smartphone.
Why UV Glue Tempered Glass Screen Protectors?
Recently there’s been an uptick in demand for UV glue tempered glass screen protectors, and for good reason. When it comes to normal tempered glass screen protectors, they’re mainly only glued on the perimeter of the glass, leaving a small gap in the center between the screen and the glass. This may seem like a non-issue, but it can cause bad touch sensitivity, while also allowing dust and debris to find their way into the screen protector once the glue wears out.
With UV glue glass screen protectors, you apply the glue yourself. This means you have time to line the screen protector up perfectly before you cure the glue. You also get better protection because the protector is fully adhered to the screen and prevents issues with touch sensitivity and dust. On top of that, these types of screen protectors also take falls better, breaking only the glass protector while leaving your screen intact.
The downside of all this is that the installation process for a UV glue tempered glass screen protectors can be tedious and honestly stressful. That’s why we’re going to be breaking down the process, taking you step-by-step through it.

Step 1: Clean Your Screen Before You Begin
First thing’s first, you will want to make sure you have a clean display before trying to apply your screen protector. Dust and debris can mess up the glue used, causing air bubbles that give the final product an unsightly look. Cleaning your display helps get rid of these issues, simultaneously smoothing out the installation process.
So, how do you get started? You’ll want to open up your NuGlas UV Glue Glass Screen Protector and take out the cleaning kit provided which includes alcohol swabs, a microfiber cloth and stickers. Give the display a light wipe with the microfiber cloth, and then proceed to dab it with one of the alcohol swabs. Once you’re done, wipe it down with the microfiber cloth again.
Once you’ve dried out the display, use the sticker to remove any remaining dust particles by blotting them off. Once you’re done, repeat the process with other alcohol swab and sticker until your display seems spotless. After that, you are now ready to move on to the next step.
Step 2: Apply UV Liquid Glue to Clean Glass
Next, you’ll want to take the provided UV Liquid Glue and evenly drop the glue along the middle of the phone’s display carefully. Make sure not to put too much down, or it’ll spill over and make quite the mess. At worst, it can to your smartphone having a very messy finish and air bubbles, needing you to start over fresh with a different screen protector.
A good tip to note down is to not overload your device with glue. While it can seem more helpful to cover the entire screen with glue, it leaves excess to spill all over and can make applying the screen protector later much more difficult than it needs to be. Instead, gingerly apply the UV Liquid Glue and keep it simple so that it coats everything evenly without going too far.
Step 3: Gently Apply UV Tempered Glass Screen Protector over Wet Glue
Once you’ve applied the UV Liquid Glue to your display, it’s time to place your tempered glass screen protector over your smartphone’s display. Thankfully, this process is relatively painless. All you need to do is apply the screen protector. Make sure to be gentle, as the last thing you want to do is accidentally smear the glue a bit too hard or damage the screen protector.

Now, adjust the screen protector so that it fits just right. You’ll want to position the UV tempered glass screen protector so that it fits perfectly in the middle of the display. It’s especially important to make sure that the screen protector is in the right spot, because once the glue solidifies you will not be able to change it.
After you’ve placed it down, you can then check the edges to make sure the glue reaches. If it doesn’t reach the edges, then you can add a bit more glue to them and allow the tempered glass screen protector to press it down. Once you’re done, just leave it, watch the air bubbles disappear and prepare for the next step on the list.
Step 5: Bake under the Light with Supplied NuGlas UV Curing Light+
After everything has been set up, all that’s left is to use the supplied NuGlas UV curing light to bake and tan your smartphone’s screen protector. Take your time running the UV curing light across the display, really allowing the light to dry up every portion of glue under the display. If you haven’t got any air bubbles, then you should have a perfectly good UV tempered glass screen protector.
Once more, if the edges need a bit more glue, you can add it in and then use the UV curing light to bake the glue so you end up with a neat finish. With that, you’ve successfully installed your NuGlas UV Glue Glass Screen Protector!
