FRONT FOILS

Front foils are screen-printed and/ or digitally printed on the back
and applied to the housing of devices and machines

Frontfoils electronical keypads

Front foils are composed of PET (film), Polycarbonate or PMMA with a graphic design and a spacer/adhesive layer. It hermetically seals the housing of a control unit and protects the electronics, which often consist of microswitches mounted on the panel.


 

Benefits:

  • Aesthetic appearance and personalised end product

  • Increases switch panel lifespan thanks to mechanical protection

  • Easy to install, the adhesive layer adheres to most surfaces

  • Requires minimal space at the front of the device (total thickness from 0.2 mm)

  • Hygienic and easy to clean


Graphic possibilities & solutions:

Graphic design is created using screen printing and digital printing technology.
Design films can be realised through a variety of surface textures.


 

General foil types:

  • Matt textured film with velvet texture

  • Finely textured film with smooth texture

  • Glossy foils

  • Display window

 

Display windows:
For display windows, both matt and clear textured films can be chosen, the latter having high scratch
resistance and chemical resistance. Coloured windows (matt & clear) for LEDs and displays

 


Push buttons:

Push buttons are embossed and embossed to optimise operation.
These buttons can be fitted with different patterns and heights
.

 

Frame embossing:
Normal embossing height is 0.3 mm.
The push button is well perceptible,
suitable for general keyboard construction.

 



Flat embossing:
Normal embossing height is 0.3 mm.
The push button is less perceptible,
suitable for general keyboard construction.

 



Dome embossing:

Normally, the height of the embossing is 0.5 mm.
The push button is tactile and provides tactile feedback,

suitable for general keyboard constructions.

Material Selection Table for Frontfoils:

*1: Special anti-reflective HC coating with good readability of LCD and LED window in case of outdoor use.
Bottom side of the window display has a nano coating to prevent the Newton Rings effect where the film touches the display glass. The display is extremely clear, air bubbles, dust and inhomogeneity cannot occur.

*2: The display is extremely clear, air bubbles, dust and inhomogeneity cannot occur.



Benefits:

  • As the ink layer is on the back of the film, the printing on the front is indelible, hard-wearing and protected against damage, grease, moisture and dirt

  • A matt textured surface prevents fingerprints and reflections

  • Pushbuttons are flexible when pressed

  • Printing of variable data & records are possible: sequential numbering, barcoding, QR codes, etc...

  • Highly detailed printing from photo details to complex colour gradients

 

Cost-efficient way of producing:

  • Lower volume quantities and prototypes are printed digitally large quantities by screen printing.

  • Lower volume quantities and prototypes are cut out by laser, large volume quantities are die-cut.
