Just looked up what thermal 'adhesive' meant, I should have known from the word itself but confirming is always a good idea. I'm not looking to make permanent bonds between anything, I like every I do to be reversible, probably due to my indecisiveness.
At the moment, I'm only worried that the copper shim would fall out of place if the laptop were ever dropped or constantly shaken.
