Switch membranes and control panels

High-quality switch membranes, operating and front panels are printed on a transparent and self-adhesive plastic membrane.

The switch membranes manufactured for our customers’ own electronics products, operating and front panels, protect the electronics and make the devices easier to use.

The switch membrane protects buttons and control electronics against dirt and moisture.

In operating and front panels, colours and symbols printed on the interior surface of the transparent membrane are protected against mechanical and chemical stress, so they are more resistant to wear and tear than painted control panel markings, for instance.

Whenever necessary, different holes and windows can be made on the switch membrane for the control panel’s displays, buttons, regulators and LED lights. The membrane can also have embossed sections.

High-quality polyester or polycarbonate used as material

Most switch membranes and operating and front panels are manufactured from transparent polyester or polycarbonate.

The surface of the membrane can be either glossy or matt, depending on the situation and purpose. The advantage of a matt-surfaced switch membrane is that it reduces reflections. A glossy surface, on the other hand, is elegant and easy to keep clean.

Also, the switch membrane efficiently protects mechanical switches underneath it against dust and dirt.

Images are printed on the inside of the transparent membrane

Switch membranes and control panels and manufactured from a transparent plastic membrane. Images and graphics are printed on the inside of a transparent membrane, where they are protected against mechanical and chemical stress.

Thanks to this structure, membrane switches and operating and front panels have a really long service life, and the patterns stay on as long as the membrane remains intact and in place.

Total freedom of design

Membrane switches and operating and front panels provide a total freedom of design. Actually, the only limitation is printing technology.

The membrane can have windows and holes as desired, it can be in any colour, and it can also have embossed sections, as necessary. Metallic colours also provide a chrome-like feel when desired.

The surface of the membrane can be either glossy or matt. Combinations of these are also possible, as necessary.

Easy to install

Membrane switches and operating and front panels are usually self-adhesive. They can be easily fastened directly onto the desired surface.

Key properties in a nutshell

Below is a list of seven excellent properties of membrane switches and operating and front panels:

Properties:

  1. thin and light, sticker-like membrane
  2. highly resistant to mechanical stress
  3. possibility for transparent and/or multi-coloured windows
  4. possibility for embossing, key and log patterns
  5. the surface can be glossy or matt, or a combination of these
  6. good chemical resistance
  7. easy to fasten (self-adhesive)

Why should you buy membranes from us?

We have been operating in this industry since 1992, so we know precisely what we do. We are repeatedly praised especially for our flexibility, high quality and delivery reliability. We often support our customers already in the prototype and design phase. All work related to the switch membranes and operating and front panels we deliver is done in Finland.
