Silicone rubber keypads are the most widely used form of switch technology today. We offer
reliability, long life and design flexibility. Conductive rubber
switches and keypads were originally developed for the electronics
industry to meet the increasing demand for inexpensive momentary
switches. Conductive rubber keypads became desirable because they
look and feel like traditional push-button style switches, but do
not have their inherent disadvantages.
Since their introduction over 30 years ago, conductive rubber
switches and keypads have gained enormous popularity and wide-range
acceptance because of their reliability, long operational life and
excellent tactile feel.
Innovative key coatings for our silicone rubber keypads are
silicone, parylene, and Dura (Hard Coat). Silicone rubber keypads
can be designed for applications exposed to water and hydrocarbons.
Enhanced graphics and lighting options allow your product to
incorporate features not found on standard silicone.
Silicone Rubber Benefits:
Silicone rubber is an excellent choice for device operation
controls. It possesses the following characteristics;
• Excellent resistance to both heat and low temperature (-55℃ to
• Minimum noise generation due to soft and elastic contact
• Minimum abrasion and high resistance to SO2 and oxidation even in
In addition, silicone rubber offers several features that make its design and
• Design both tactile and linear feedback;
• Translucent materials available ;
• Cost effective;
• Multi-color designs easily accommodated;
• Water and contamination resistant ;
Cosmetically appealing, 3-D Rubber Keypads offer the reliability of
a membrane or PCB-substrate switch, with the three dimensional look
and tactile feel of a silicone rubber keypad for a variety of
applications including medical, industrial and commercial products.
