Choosing The Correct Adhesive For Your Application

If you’re having trouble with the adhesion of your membrane keypad , graphic overlay or label then you might be using the wrong substrate.

It’s a problem that some designers won’t consider during the development process so here’s a handy chart to make sure you pick the right one for your project.

We stock adhesives from leading manufacturers such as 3M and Memcon so please don’t hesitate to contact us and discuss your next requirement.
