Graphic overlay applications for different environments


  • Use in outdoor and indoor environments:

Graphic Overlay as a Membrane Push Button’s common outdoor problems are ultraviolet rays, variable extreme temperatures, and humidity. The problems that often occur indoors are the dizziness of the keys caused by the lights and the damage of chemicals.

Anti-ultraviolet materials and Nitto tape or 3M tape that can withstand extreme temperatures can solve the problem. The vertigo caused by lighting can be solved by printing ink or even anti-glare materials.

  • Graphic Overlay's choice of materials:

The conventional choice of materials is polyester, polycarbonate, silicone rubber keypad, Glass or acrylic as Graphic overlay. So which material is best?

Product materials have their own advantages. In terms of cost, acrylic, Polycarbonate and silicone rubber keypad are relatively more cost-effective when the quantity is large.

  • The choice of Embossing:

The embossing of Graphic overlay is generally buttons or LEDs windows. The main purpose of embossing LEDs windows is to worry that the thickness of the Membrane Push Button is not enough to cause the LEDs to be pressed and cause damage to the panel. The Embossing of Graphic overlay buttons increases the tactile feebdack of the Membrane Push Button, which can also reduce the user's mistakes.

The blind spot bumping is less common:

Perimeter-embossed                                       Edge-embossed

No embossing                                                Pillow-embossed

  • LCD window selection: Anti-glare is very important for LCD windows, to avoid light dizzying the product. Choosing anti-glare materials or choosing anti-glare coatings also need to be considered for Graphic Overlay.

  • Printing options: Screen printing is the most common choice for Graphic Overlay, and its small color error and diversity have always been favored by customers. The biggest advantage of Digital Printing is its cost advantage in mass production and the characteristics of Gradients.

  • Do you need three-dimensional buttons: The latest type of glue-based buttons on Graphic Overlay. It has a three-dimensional touch and a high value-added aesthetic effect.
