Virtually all panels and overlays are printed in reverse on
the back side of a transparent substrate, protecting the ink
from scratches or abrasion. The substrate, in addition, may
be hard coated or contain UV inhibitors for further protection.
The correct adhesive is determined by the type of mounting
surface as well as environmental factors, and may be applied
selectively, zoning out viewing windows or switch keys.
A texture may be applied to the first surface, further
improving durability. Viewing windows, keys or logos may
be excluded leaving a shiny gloss surface where desired.
Raising switch keys, your logo, or a rail around a logo or
text can add to the appeal of your product.
