Silicon Keypads

Entech Electronics China offer a complete range of silicon keypads to suit a variety of end-user applications. Technologies available include laser etched, multi-coloured, wear-resist coated and plastic feel keypads and keycaps.

Our keypads can also incorporate a wide range of requirements in tactile feel, switch travel, endurance characteristics, aesthetic appeal, plastic keycaps and contouring. Laser etched keypads Laser etched keypads are produced using translucent coloured silicones with printed keytops, which are sprayed with silicone paint. After curing, the paint is laser etched to expose the translucent ink below. When backlit only the etched characters transmit light.

This makes the keypads ideal for applications where excess light spillage would detract from the usability of the end product. Most colours are available for spraying including metallic colours such as silver and brass.in addition to our ability to match client supplied colour swatches. By applying the colour to the key, rather than printing the colour on top of the key, the cost of the keypad is reduced and the risk of ink wear is minimised.
