How to attach a silicone heater pad to plate?

Postby sgibbers17 » 2017-Apr-Sun-15-Apr

I bought a larger heated bed for my printer but it turns out that it is a lower wattage than my old bed so I topped out at 60 degrees C. The plate I bought is a aluminum plate with the heater traces as part of the bed, I would like to not use this heater and use a silicone heater pad. The pad I bought does not have the 3m adhesive on the back and I don't want to permanently glued to the bottom of my plate. Does anybody know if I can just by the 3m adhesive film to put on the back of the pad? Or if there is a silicone adhesive that will not permanently adhere it to the plate and easily peeled off?

Is it possible that you got a 12/24V bed, and it's been wired for 24V instead of the 12 our Printrbot's use? I've seen them sold with essentially two separate 12V heaters that are either wired in series for 24V, or in parallel for 12. Can you post a link to the heated bed you purchased?

No it says 12v right on it.
