Membrane switches are simply a part of electronic equipment, and are often regarded as user interfaces or human-machine interfaces, making it easier for operators to input communications and commands to operate electronic equipment, making users more convenient. Membrane switch can also be called membrane panel. Membrane keypad or membrane keyboard is an electrical switch that can make the circuit turn on or off by changing the key pressure. Generally composed of Polyester, Lexan, Polycarbonate, adhesive, snap dome, connector, conductive inks, carbon ink or copper flex circuit.

What can Niceone-tech could do?

Niceone-tech customized membrane switches for different customers are widely used in various industries, empower exceptional product design for other man-machine interface solutions.

Membrane switch constantly updates and upgrades its technology, and its durability is gradually improved. Because of its superior performance and affordable price. As a reliable human-machine interface, it is increasingly favored by home, office and industrial applications.

Niceone-tech strictly customizes products in accordance with ISO9001-2015, and invests a lot of money every year to develop the technology of the membrane switch to improve the added value of products such as performance, life and function. Our membrane switches are exported in large quantities to European and American countries with stable quality and affordable prices. Niceone-tech understands the standards of European and American countries, so the products are always able to meet and exceed customer expectations.

What are the functions and advantages of membrane switches?

The reason why the membrane switch is widely used is because of some very superior performances. It can fulfill various requirements of users, from industrial equipment to medical equipment.

Moisture-proof performance: Because the membrane switch uses a good pressure-sensitive adhesive layer and the stable performance of Polyester, Lexan, Polycarbonate one of the materials together. Membrane switch can be designed to meet NEMA 4 and IP 67, some products can even reach IP68.

Thin: First, it is not easy to be invaded by dust, and secondly, it reduces the space of the product.

Easy to clean: Membrane switches are easier to clean the surface than other mechanical keyboards.

Cost-effective: Compared with touch keyboard and silicone rubber keyboard, membrane switch cost will be more affordable.

Graphic interface: The topmost panel of the membrane switch can be the most conventional screen printing or digital printing. Niceone-tech can design the product to achieve the best visual effect. At the same time display the company logo and key functions on the panel

Protection by design- through the design of membrane switches can achieve antibacterial, anti-ultraviolet and other effects.

What special features can Niceone-tech membrane switches provide?

Backlighting Membrane Switch with Side-LEDs

Many working environments and machines will be used in low light or dark conditions. At this time, the customer asked us if we could solve this problem. At this time we will recommend the use of membrane switches with internal lighting. Choose EL film as the light guide plate, Fiber Optics, and the newer Light guide film (LGF) structure. Niceone-tech recommends LGF, which uses side LEDs and light guide panels to make the product have lower loss and longer life relative to EL membrane switch. Also available in different colors.

The thickness of the LGF membrane switch provided by Niceone-tech can even be 0.8mm. The brightness of buttons and logos is not only uniform and long-lasting, but more importantly, we can also make them illuminate each button individually. Sometimes you can also use two-color or RGB three-color lights to enter

One step makes the product more beautiful.

*If the customer wants the product to be more novel and beautiful, then we can sometimes use Epoxy in combination with the keys. Makes it an Epoxy LGF membrane switch

If you are interested in Backlit Membrane Switch, please feel free to contact Niceone-tech, we will send samples as soon as possible.

There are three other types of illuminating membrane switches below.

Fiber Optics

Fiber optic membrane switches are also a good choice for backlighting. The optical fiber material is very thin and can be used as a fixed layer of the membrane switch. At the same time, tactile feedback is better without adding a touch point. Life expectancy is up to 50,000 to 100,000 hours. The main light source is from LEDs

Through the optical fiber transmission in the membrane switch needs to light up. And can be larger than the surface-mounted LED backlight area. Click Fiber Optics membrane switch for more information.

Electroluminescent (EL)

EL backlight is driven by high frequency and low power. EL is very thin, it is a substitute for traditional lighting technology, and is widely used in various electronic accessories. The life of EL backlight products mainly depends on the driving voltage, frequency, temperature and humidity. But most EL membrane switches can reach a life of 4000 hours or more. The brightness of the EL membrane switch will attenuate linearly from the initial power-on. This is also an unavoidable disadvantage relative to other backlight membrane switch panels.

The EL backlit membrane switch provided by Niceone-tech will not cause heat, electricity and EMI problems. Mainly EL is more often a "cold" lighting medium.


A common Light Emitting Diodes membrane switch with relatively low cost. Since this technology membrane switch cannot meet the lighting of a large area, it is mostly used for indication purposes. It is a relatively old technology. But the service life is long and deep customers love it.

Common design:

*Graphic overlays digitally and/or screen printed on the backside. The effect can be customized according to your requirements including glass, metal, wood, and stone. If the panel is in a more severe environment, we can even use hardened glass and stainless steel as the panel material. It is very important to choose Overlay printing according to requirements.

*The window needs raw materials to be transparent, frosted, transparent or colored. The window of the membrane switch is different, and the choice of materials is also very different. When the window is large, and it is required to clearly see the bottom LCD or touch screen. EBG series is a good choice, the material is scratch resistant. If it is just a panel, then PC or Lexan overlay is also feasible

*Selective textures and UV hard-coat surface finishes

*Tactile or non tactile, snap dome or non snap dome.

*Pillow rim-embossed membrane switch panels

*Optically clear adhesive(OCA),Liquid Optically Clear Adhesive,Air Gap

*EMI/RFI shielding

*Rigid support backers such as aluminum and FR4 with PEM mounting fasteners

*Standard connectors such as CJT, Nicomatic and molex, etc.
