How to Choose a Keypad or Overlay Finish

How to Choose a Keypad or Overlay Finish

If your business equipment requires a membrane keypad or a graphic overlay, then it’s important to choose a long-lasting, durable product. The buttons are likely to be used hundreds of times a day and a failure on the keyboard could result in an operational disaster.

From catering equipment to aviation apparatus, the majority of industrial applications and technology require graphic overlays and membrane keypads. As market leaders in the manufacture of these products, here at Fascia Graphics we are always looking for new innovations and improvements we could make. We’re excited to announce that we are now offering a brand new range of finishes, so our customers have even more options for tailoring their keyboards and overlays.

We have access to a huge variety of raw materials to create the ideal finishes for every application. We are now introducing…

Chrome Ink Technology

This exciting technology is newly developed and we’re thrilled to be able to offer it to our customers. The chrome ink is highly reflective and gives a metallic finish to overlays and keypads. This new finish looks seriously stylish and can also be embossed to include logos – make sure your equipment is attractive as well as practical!

Softouch

This super slim film offers a premium surface application option. Softouch offers excellent resistance against abrasion, wear and tear and the majority of chemicals and solvents, making it one of the most hardwearing finishes available.  It gives a five star tactile experience, and switches can withstand over five million actuations! Softouch is also easily embossed, and additionally offers high quality image definition.

Autotex Steel

No, it’s not real steel – but it might as well be! Autotex Steel is a polyester base film with a surface finish that resembles brushed stainless steel. Just like Softouch, this material also offers outstanding resistance against surface wear, chemicals and solvents. This makes it ideal for harsh environments where the keypad or graphic overlay could come into contact with damaging substances. Available in two different thicknesses, Autotex Steel is set to become one of our most popular overlay finishes.
