Force Sensing Resistors

The force-sensing resistor is an evolution of the membrane switch using similar design principles and related manufacturing techniques.  Sytek offers standard and custom designed Force Sensing Resistors.  In 2014, Sytek created a new division called Tangio Printed Electronics, to focus on the research and development of innovative printed electronics.  Developing a custom resistive force sensor with Tangio starts with a discovery phase where our engineers will discuss the desired user experience and your mechanical and electrical requirements. We provide expert advice not only on the sensor design but also on the sensor integration into your product, to ensure consistent and repeatable results. 

Elastomeric Keypads

Elastomeric keypads provide a unique tactile response and are built to withstand the toughest environments.  They take advantage of the natural properties of silicon rubber in order to deliver a very durable and reliable human-machine interface. Silicon rubber is a natural light diffuser and therefore keys can be easily backlit using LEDs. Silicon rubber also has good sealing properties so that the elastomeric keypad can double as a seal when it is matched up with a suitable mechanical closing method.

Graphic Overlays

Graphic Overlays are normally associated with the top layer of membrane switches, however they can be used on any product that requires.  A decorative overlay that improves the visual impact of the product, including the addition of logos and product-specific branding - OR - A functional overlay that guides users on how to interact with the product and where to press/touch to active the functional elements beneath the overlay (such as switches, buttons, etc).  Let us help you create a stunning and effective graphic overlay that highlights the features and functionality of your products.

Labels and Decals

Industrial quality labels and decals must be printed on the correct substrate and with appropriate inks to ensure durability in the harshest environments. We stock a diverse range of polyester, vinyl and polycarbonate substrates that can be matched to your requirements for virtually any type of label or decal.  Many of our customers make products that require labels and decals that carry approved standard logos such as UL and CSA. Sytek Enterprises is certified by both UL and CSA to manufacture labels and decals carrying their respective logos.
