Silicone is one of the youngsters among working materials. It was not discovered until the beginning of the 20th century and was first produced on a large technical scale in the 1940s. An enormous number of different types can be made.
The material has now made its way into many areas of everyday life. It can be found in the form of babies’ pacifiers, groove sealant, baking shapes, toys for pets and a great deal more. The reason why silicone has become so common is its unique range of properties.
Properties, which we appreciate as a manufacturer of operating technology and particularly know how to use.
Silicone can be used in very different temperatures. They range from -60°C to 250°C. It is very hard to set alight and has excellent resistance to boiling water and steam up to 140°C.
These characteristic features [material durability of silicone] make silicone an ideal material for manufacturing data input devices for a very wide range of applications.
Thanks to being physiologically harmless, silicone is outstandingly suitable for use in hygiene-sensitive areas. Our keyboards and mice made of silicone [silicone in medicine] are therefore extremely popular in the food industry and the medical and pharmaceutical sectors. The silicone casing prevents any water penetrating and enables the devices to be cleaned thoroughly and easily. This saves time when cleaning, but also prevents any germs, viruses or bacteria from spreading because the material can be disinfected.
Units are not only clinically clean, but may become dirty too! The standards for data input devices in a tough industrial setting are particularly high. Thanks to its extreme resistance to a wide variety of aggressive materials and its ability to be used in very different temperatures, our operating elements made of silicone [selection of silicone products] can also be readily used in areas with adverse conditions. The devices are simple to clean, while water and dirt cannot penetrate them because of their sealed surface. This guarantees a long serviceable life.
Is a black or white keyboard too boring for you? Silicone keyboards can be individually designed too – with your own company logo or by changing the keyboard layout, your keyboard becomes unmistakable and can be perfectly integrated into your corporation’s current corporate identity. It is also possible to use several colors in a silicone mat.
Special coating against abrasion and for long-term sealing
Can be purchased in small numbers too
