Silicone Button Production Process
Dec 26, 2018

Silicon is a silicone rubber product produced by a high-temperature vulcanized rubber as a main raw material by a compression vulcanization molding process. A finished silicone button goes through the following processes:

First, the preparation of raw materials (also known as rubber, preparation, etc.): including the mixing of raw rubber, color matching, weight calculation of raw materials.


Second, vulcanization molding (also known as hydraulic forming): High-pressure vulcanization equipment is used for high-temperature vulcanization to make silica gel raw materials into solid form.

Third, the peak (also known as processing, deburring, etc.): Silicone products taken out of the mold will be accompanied by some useless raw edges, hole shavings, need to be removed; currently, in the industry, this process is completely done by hand, and some The factory is also completed with a punch.

Fourth, silk screen: This process is only used on some silicone keyboards with patterns on the surface, such as English letters and Arabic numerals on the silicone keyboard. In order to make the user operate the buttons conveniently, it is necessary to screen the characters corresponding to the mobile phone keyboard in the corresponding position.

Fifth, surface treatment: Surface treatment includes dust removal with air guns;

Sixth, fuel injection: Silicone keyboard is easy to absorb dust in the air under normal conditions, and has a certain viscosity. Spray a thin layer of hand-feel on the surface of the silicone button to prevent dust and make the hand feel.

Seventh, other: Other processes include some additional functions that the merchant gives to the silicone keyboard, such as dispensing glue, laser engraving, P+R synthesis, optimized packaging, and other materials and component assembly.
