Advantages of Light Guide Film
Our line of custom-formed light guide film (LGF) can help you transform your product designs by offering you unique advantages over more traditional backlighting methods, such as the ability to evenly flood your product with light without creating hotspots. The keys are farther away from the light source, making it appear to be the same intensity as the keys closer to the light source — this is the result of a unique process of printing on PET film.
Other advantages include:
- Allows the overall thickness of your keypad or similar products to remain thin and flexible
- Can be placed directly onto a rigid PCB employing a double-sided adhesive if desired
- Requires fewer LEDs to be used in the product, which lowers lighting costs and reduces the power drain on portable devices

Anything you desire to backlight can utilize LGF, including:

- Membrane switches
- IMD keypads
- Plastic housings
- Enclosures manufactured from different materials
Tactile and Non-Tactile Keypads
Keypads that backlight with LGF can be non-tactile, or incorporate metal dome arrays to provide a tactile feel without detracting from the lighting performance.
