    where do you buy the tape that stick thermal sensor to chips?

    It can be both but probably China. Will not make a difference.

    where do you buy the tape that stick thermal sensor to chips?

    Like everyone said kapton tape is what to use. One of its back in the day purpose was masking for solder reflow. So will take temperature. The silicone adhesive may not seem to be "sticky" but its designed like that and will work. Just need to clean substrate as said above

    How to remove thermal epoxy?

    Most non grease TIM between the heatsink and chip is Phase change material. Its wax and will soften with heat. It does "bond" very well.
