Using Liquid Silicone Injection Molding for Security Systems

April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 173

There are many uses for rubber keypads. One of them is security system controls. Whether residential or commercial, there are a number of reasons that these should be used instead of plastic or touchscreen models. While there are four different types of rubber molding processes, liquid silicone injection molding is the most effective way to make long-lasting rubber keypads.

BacklightingUse of backlighting on the console ensures the user can find the numbers in the dark. A backlit rubber keypad, this means that each button is illuminated, making it easier to see. Using plastic buttons or a glass touchscreen eliminates the uncertainty. Pressing the right buttons when setting or disabling an alarm system is critical. When the wrong button is hit, this could cause a false alarm or fail to arm the system.

Printing Durable printing is important for rubber keypads. When numbers wear off after repeated use, anyone coming to the home or office with nefarious intentions can easily determine the possible combinations of the security code by examining the buttons. Liquid silicone injection molding with laser number printing on the keypad's exterior ensures it will not wear off to give away the code. Another option is to use reverse laser printing on the underside of the key. The number is still clearly visible, but the printing does not wear.

Colors The use of colors on home security panel rubber keypads are two-fold. The key background colors and the number or control key word and symbol printing must be contrasting. This ensures that the user knows exactly what keys to depress.

Touch Keys When depressing the various keys on a silicone liquid injection molding rubber keypad, the key has two purposes. There are different depths that a key must travel in order to serve its purpose. The size, shape and depth are determined in the design phase. Most importantly, each key must make contact with the security alarm panel device below it to activate the proper response. Secondly, the user should feel some give when they press the key to prevent confusion. Imagine pressing the same button twice when attempting to enter a code properly. Improper code entry could cause the alarm to trip. Failure to set the alarm could create the possibility of a security breach.

Durability The liquid silicone injection molding process offers durability where plastic and other surfaces do not. Hard plastic can become very brittle in extreme temperatures. Liquid silicone injection molding is more durable in extreme temperatures, which means that the rubber keypads will last longer and can withstand more rugged conditions.
