Light-Cure Keypad Coatings

Offer Design Flexibility While Performing to Stringent Interface Requirements


Keypad Coatings for Electronic Devices

Dymax light-curable coatings are designed to be molded onto plastic films and act as an outer layer of interfaces, including keypads. Dymax light-curing keypad coatings offer design flexibility while performing to stringent interface requirements including most common chemical resistance, impact, abrasion, and pencil-hardness specifications. The molding process enables instant fabrication of various contours, shapes, and textures. Set-up costs are minimal compared to similar performing keypads that require injection molds.
