Material Hardness:

Typical key hardness is 55 shore, which offers a reasonably hard button feel whilst maintaining
good flexibility in the key skirt.

Should you wish a key that feels very hard but need good flexibility so that the key will last for
many actuations choose a 60 shore or greater keytop and 55 shore keypad base. If your keypad
will also be used to seal the housing and you do not require a hard feel 30 or 40 shore hardness
is the best solution.

Keytop Coatings:


If your keypad will be used in a clean environment such as an office and will not be a high use
application there should be no requirement for a coating unless it is for aesthetic purposes.
In high use applications where the ink on the key could suffer from wear we recommend K-111
wear resist coating.

If you would like the keypad to have a 'hard plastic' feel and look Gloss Epoxy coating is a great
option, which also assists stop ink wear.

Key Travel:

Most applications use a 1.3mm key travel.

Where you need fast data entry choose 0.8mm travel.
In applications where an accidental key press could cause problems (such as an alarm pin pad) use a longer key travel, typically 1.5 to 2.0mm.

Some examples of key travel recommendations are:

Eftpos Equipment: 1.0~1.5mm
Alarm Panels: 1.5~2.0mm
Calculators: 0.8~1.0mm
Medical Equipment: 1.3~1.8mm

If you are using your keypad over a pcb mounted switch please indicate the switch travel plus clearance between the bottom of the key and the top of the switch.
