Thanks. 2mm pads on their way ...
Thanks for the reply. I found a place online that sells 1mm pads; however, it seems that the supplied pad is already 1.4mm, so maybe a 2mm pad is in order? Also, if the glued side really should be towards the case, then perhaps the FAQ needs tweaking: Q9: How do I attach the Thermal Pad?A9: No right answer here. Remove the thermal tape plastic pieces and apply to the case's heat slug. That's it. You can also apply it to the chip, either one is fine.
I agree that the thermal pad is easy to tear (mine is in 3 pieces), and there should be a way to get a new one. Does the FLIRC staff read these posts? (They don't seem to answer the phone at 11:30AM on a weekday.)
