LED light type membrane switches waterproof ip69 customizable

    Main features: 

    LED lights are assembled in a membrane switch as a whole


    (a) the LED line and the lower line are on the same layer: the structure is simple, but the LED window should be convex, otherwise, the LED light will jack up the panel; it is suitable to select small LED lights with low height or occasions with small number of LED lights;

    (b) Different layers of LED lines and lower lines: the structure is complex, but the LED window does not have to be convex, which is suitable for the occasions with more LED lights; punching die and bottom rubber die need to be opened.


    vulnerable to heavy pressure damage, and difficult to recover

    Model:LED01, LED1924

    Product applications:

    mobile phone, weighing instrument, bathroom, electronic equipment


Basics of Membrane Switch: Material

There are three main materials used for membrane switch

Material: Polycarbonate (PC)


Temperature resistance – 60 ~ 120 ℃, thickness 0.125 ~ 1.2, smooth surface, high transmittance, environmental protection, low water absorption, good dimensional stability, excellent bending, tensile and compressive strength, excellent heat resistance, cold resistance, electrical insulation and atmospheric aging resistance. It can meet the requirements of most membrane switch panels, and the high transmittance of PC can meet the requirements of LCD window.


Chemical resistance (organic solvent) is poor, fatigue resistance is poor, stress cracking is easy to occur, air oxidation is easy to gradually form a falling off layer, determined by the environment, and finally gradually decomposed. The physical damage time is 3-8 years.

Material:Polyester (poly (ethylene phthalate) (PET)


Temperature resistance – 30 ~ 160 ℃ / thickness 0.075 ~ 0.25/smooth, good drug resistance.

It has excellent mechanical properties, insulation, heat resistance, hardness and the largest strength and toughness of thermoplastic, excellent wear resistance and friction resistance, especially with bending resistance and high elasticity, and high dimensional stability.

The tensile strength is comparable to that of aluminum film, much higher than that of PC and PVC. It is the most ideal substrate for making thin film switch circuit. Textured  PET is the preferred material for membrane switch panel.


Insoluble in general organic solvents, not alkali resistant.

Low water absorption.

Textured  PET  is expensive.

Material:Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)


Temperature resistance -20~60 ℃ / thickness 0.175~1.5/ smooth surface, stable to acid, alkali and salt under normal temperature. It has good wear resistance, flame resistance and self extinguishing, noise elimination and shock absorption, and good electrical insulation.


Poor thermal stability.
