Silicone Rubber Keypads

Rubbertech have been manufacturing silicone rubber keypads for over 30 years. Our keypads can be found in test instruments, chip and pin devices, hospital call alarms, fire alarm panels and many more electronic control systems.

Rubber keypads are generally produced in silicone rubber by means of compression moulding. This process allows us to mould the angled web areas that control the tactile feel of the buttons and incorporate conductive carbon contacts into the finished moulding.

Silicone rubber keypads are still the most popular method of human machine interface due to their tactile nature, huge range of design options and relative low cost.

Moulding Requirements

Silicone rubber keypads can be moulded to accommodate the following requirements

  • Keypads can be moulded with a conductive contact allowing for operation with a PCB
