Shin-Etsu Polymer developed a range of Projective Capacitive Touch Sensors based on various conductive materials printed or deposited on ultra thin films. The sensors are developed to be mounted behind bended surface panels to provide curved touch surfaces. The combination of optical clear base film and transparent conductive material creates optical clear and transparent sensors.
Conductive materials used:
* coated conductive polymer Seplegyda® – high transparent conductive surface for touch switches
* printed silver or carbon patterning – printing mesh structures for touch switches and touchpads
* etched metal patterning – patterns for touchpads
