It needs to be heavy-duty as this will be the only adhesive that bonds the screen to the frame.
3M or 3M-type. Double sided with the red peel-off stuff is most commonly used. I saw some 3M copies at Sayal Electronics. Real 3M with the proper thickness for phones (1mm-5mm) is hard to get locally and Amazon is probably best.

Keep in mind that success depends on the model and condition of the phone. Bent housings will never keep a screen in place for long. Also some phones (eg Sony's) just don't take on new screens well.

You need something like this, https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00PVWMTA6
Yes, that's too thick. I've also tried the tape thqt Batcave suggested and it's pretty good but hard to find locally. This is the tape I originally had in mind and have used from Sayal Electronics which is easily obtainable locally. [EDIT] oops, sorry AsianXL - locally for GTA. I just realized your from Vancouver!
