Bayer Plastics’ new Bayfol CR polycarbonate (PC)/polyethylene terephthalate (PET) polyester film provides a gloss/micro-matte finish for membrane switch applications that allows easier embossing and improved ink adhesion. The Bayfol CR film is the first material in the membrane switch market to compete with PET films for use in see-through window applications found on microwaves, ranges, washers and medical IV monitoring equipment. The Bayfol material is able to overcome problems that have affected PET-only membrane switch overlays, such as faceplate cracking.
