Uses of Silicone Rubber Membrane Switch

Generally, substrates with a thickness of 0.25mm or less are referred to as membranes, primarily used as the panel layer for membrane switches. The top graphic overlay is printed with various indicative patterns and text, indicating the operational area corresponding to the switch positions. The choice of thickness depends on the size of the panel and keys; thicker materials result in increased tactile feedback but slower response, while materials that are too thin may feel less comfortable with unclear rebound. Thicknesses above 0.25mm are termed sheets and are not suitable for three-dimensional key forming. They can be used as indicator panel layers for areas without keys or as backplates for membrane switches to enhance their hardness.
