Default [Q] Replacing the Xperia Tablet Zs screen - adhesive?

So I've taken the old cracked LCD off my Tablet Z and am about to order a new replacement.

Question is - anyone know what is used to stick the back cover back on and what is the best adhesive for sticking the LCD/Touch screen unit back in (3M double sided tape?). The cover was attached using some form of spongy foam tape - where can I get this from? Is this a sealant for the waterproofing aspect of the Xperia Tablet Z?

as far as understand if you open the case once, your device is no longer waterproof even if you use adhesive/sealant.

I think your right, I seem to remember there is mention of some form of pressure test point in the tear down. In any case I won't be risking it near water. But generally does anyone know what the best adhesive to use is. Original stuff seems to be very strong but soft and tacky, unlike the superglue type which I will be avoiding.
