Question [Q] Fresh adhesive tape necessary for touch screen assemblage?

When assembling a new touch screen for my LG p880, is it really necessary to use new adhesive tape? I've seen some assemblage movies where there's nothing mentioned about adhesive, they just push both parts together and that's it. Apparently, the old adhesive is still sticky enough? I am wondering as I've also seen advertisements for special adhesive tape...

I don't know about your case.

The Nook Touch uses the zForce IR touch sensor.
It's all stuck together with double stick tape.
The alignment is actually pretty critical.
I've got a roll of that double stick tape for putting plastic on windows in the winter.
It looks like it would be perfect, although I'll have to trim the width.
