Overmolding rubber buttons can be with beautiful appearance as the parting lines of colored buttons are clear with any color beeding. In addition, overmolding rubber keypad with dual hardness can have better tactile feel feedback to meet customers’ different actuation force requirements.
Silicone Multicolor Keyboard also known as colour keypad, colour keyboard, colorful button pad, which is made from silicone rubber, a kind of elastomeric translucent synthetic material, with colored keyboard & button keys. Silicone multicolor keyboard which need different colors keys, but don’t want the colors mixed, buttons hardness & durometer are different from the key web or not all the buttons at the same hardness.
