Protective keypad coatings are important for many electronic products, as they can enhance the value of the product.
The protective keypad coatings also offer superb tactile operation and multiple finishing techniques.
Rubber keypad protective coatings help to increase a keypad’s lifecycle by enhancing wear resistance.
They also can preserve the product by helping to reduce dust and the chance of the surface feel of the silicone changing after heavy use.
As rubber keypads are produced, adding a protective coating at the end of production ensures the ruggedness and longevity of the keypad.
Silicone Rubber Keypad Design Structure
1. Silicone Button & Key
2. Silicone Button Pads
3. Button & Key flexible webbing
4. Button & Key Travel
5. Button Conductive: Carbon Pills & Graphite Pads etc.
Notes: Silicone Keyboard Designers or Manufacturers, not only in consideration of actuation force and silicone rubber keypads structure like silicone buttons travels, keypad conductive materials, silicone rubber buttons webbing, but also should in view of silicone surface & materials demands, like symbols & icons, protective keyboard cover, silicone keypads materials choice &transparency, hardness, color spraying coating etc.
Types of Protective Coatings for Rubber Keypads
2. PU Coating
Matte protective spray coating offers good wear protection and a smooth, silky finish that helps reduce dirt and dirt attraction.
Polyurethane (or PU) is a protective overcoat applied to rubber keypads. It has many advantages as follows:
may be applied in a glossy or matte finish, to meet the aesthetic requirements of the rubber keypad;
be deposited on the top surface of the keypad over the printing;
provides wear resistance for very high use applications or products that are used in harsh environments;
increases abrasion resistance, adds UV resistance and prolongs the longevity of the rubber;
protect rubber keypads from oils, dirt, and contamination;
is also a cost effective solution.
Epoxy Coating – Protective clear coating applied to keytops only.
100% wear resistant thick coating for high use applications.
These epoxy drip coatings on keytops provide a hard plastic feel or lens effect, which looks as beautiful as crystal.
Plastic rubber keyboard, also called P + R keyboard, in aim to improve keypad surface's wear-resistance, dust free, oil proof surface for long lifespan, and also have good aesthetic & backlight effects.
