Membrane touch switch materials are used in manufacturing of various membrane touch switches. The membrane touch switch materials form different layers in the construction of a membrane switch. A membrane touch switch can have two or more layers depending on the application and the membrane touch switch materials used. The membrane touch switch materials vary according to the layer type. The most preferred membrane touch switch materials in the layers include: polyester, metal dome, polyimide, aluminum and steel. Membrane touch switch materials possess various functional properties such as high temperature resistance, good printability with no pre-treatment and better dimensional stability. The membrane touch switch materials are compatible with UV curing screen inks and solvents. The membrane touch switch materials such as polyester are applied with UV cured, flexible, chemically bonded and textured coating in order to enhance the efficiency of the membrane touch switch materials. The membrane touch switch materials have a wide range of end use applications such as electro luminescence lamps, touchpad, sensors, membrane touch switches, industrial control systems, digitizers and potentiometers. Strong adhesion, flexibility and high conductivity offered by membrane touch switch materials has enabled the usage of membrane touch switch materials in aerospace and military applications.
The growth of aerospace industry owing to the latest technological advancements is expected to drive the membrane touch switch materials market. The growth of electronics industry is expected to boost the sales of membrane touch switch materials in near future. Low shelf life of some of the membrane touch switch materials such as polyester films is expected to help in the market growth of membrane touch switch materials.
The use of specialty membrane touch switch materials such as adhesives offered by 3M are expected to set a new trend in the membrane touch switch materials market. The high cost offered by the isolated storage conditions of membrane touch switch materials is expected to slow down the market growth of the membrane touch switch materials.
