Antibacterial Keyboard Cover Additives & Agents
How does antimicrobial keyboard cover inhibit germs? The antimicrobial effect of keyboard protective skin is achieved by adding antibacterial additives & agents into the silicone material. The common agents are Inorganic metal silver ion, nano titanium dioxide and other antibacterial agents. There are two ways to make silicone material have antibacterial property. One is antibacterial treatment on the surface of silicone, and another is adding anti-microbial agent in the preparation of silicone rubber. It is very important to control the proportion of antibacterial agents added. The safety will be ensured when the adding proportion is lower than stipulated maximum permissible usage. Generally, the way using antibacterial treatment on the surface of silicone is more applicable to short-term antibacterial products while adding anti-microbial agent in the preparation of silicone rubber will change the silicone property and can apply to making products needing long-term antibacterial.
Some antimicrobials can not only prevent algae growth but also inhibit the growth of odour causing bacteria. Our antibacterial keyboard cover have high antimicrobial performance and can prevent the breeding of bacteria, fungi (mold and mildew) and keep the keyboard covers safer and cleaner.

Here is the test results of antibacterial activity of our antimicrobial keyboard cover:
Antibacterial Keyboard Cover Manufacturing Process
How is antibacterial keyboard cover made? It is similar to silicone rubber keypad manufacturing process. If the silicone antimicrobial keypad cover need self adhesive layer, additional steps needed for self sdhesive backing. Here is ourself adhesive clear keyboard cover for POS machine terminal making process.
1. Material Preparation: Adding proper proporation of antimicrobials to raw silicone material to make antimicrobial silicone.
2. Antibacterial Keyboard Cover Compresstion Molding: Placing the antibacterial silicone material on the mold tool. The heat and pressure will form the silicone into the hygienic keyboard cover shape, then removing the protector skin from the mold by using air hoses. The silicone keyboard protector will like a sheet when the mold opened. The flashing should be removed by hand.
3. Self Adhesive Backing: Clean and disinfect the area needed to applied the treating agent for stronger and tighter bonding between the antimicrobial keypad cover and adhesive layer. Then put the anti-microbial keyboard skin in the position tool and accurate placed stick double sides silicone 3m tape withouting bubbles.
4. Quality Control and Packaging: Check the antimicrobial keyboard cover one by one and pack it with pp bag.
