Key Components Of Silicone-Rubber Keypads

Base material

We use a translucent silicone rubber base material of excellent quality to develop our general-purpose silicone keypads.

Add-on services

Take advantage of additional services such as painting, printing (PMS, metallic and fluorescent colors available), and urethane coating finish for a basic keypad.

Button choice

Our keypads can feature soft silicone buttons (typically 55 durometers), as well as hard buttons that are created by adding epoxy caps.

Backlighting

Our experts can mold light pipes for LEDs, painting the translucent silicone and laser etching the backlit graphics for an optimal visual effect.

Co-molded inserts

These are all the additional elements such as shielding, adhesives, venting, pinouts, connector tail, and dome arrays. We can design membrane switches with almost any Surface Mount Device component embedded in them like resistors or light sensors.

Circuit design

Choose from PCBs and flex circuits (FPC or silver/PET). Electrical contact with the circuit is based on carbon pill inserts or printed carbon contacts.

Tactile function

We create the tactile feel by placing a metal snap dome below the button or using the rubber durometer and geometry of the button itself.
