Silicone rubber keypads, which is made of translucent elastomer silicone rubber materials by compression mold tooling, is widely used in industrial electronic products, medical products, comsumer products as reliable switch performance.
Silicone keypad web/wall thickness and uniformity, key travel, and silicone materials hardness which mainly determine keypad auctuation force and also known as tactile feeling.
High or low auctuation force keypad, which can’t determine elastomer keypad’s tactile feeling. Making good tactile feeling keypads should care about the global keypad designs, and also keytop hardness, keypad wall uniformity,keypad travel,tooling EDM process etc.
Silicone rubber keypads have many types according surface legends, conductive ways and materials Property demands.
