You might be surprised to know how often silicone is used in kid-friendly products. From toys to educational tools, childcare products and more, silicone has been proven to be an effective component due to its safety, ease of use, and durability.


For a parent, there is nothing more important than a child’s safety. Although nothing is risk-free, there are many steps that can be taken to make products safer for children. The materials that a product is made with are not only important for functionality, they also play an important role in safety. Consider a glass touchscreen in the hand of a child. Although this seems harmless at first, what would happen if the glass were to break? Not only would there be sharp edges on the screen itself, but there is also the risk of glass shattering onto the floor.

Ease of Use

Have you ever found yourself repeating instructions over and over when talking to children? Sometimes kids just need a little extra clarity to communicate effectively. Keypads created by SiTech are made with this idea in mind. With our key design options and customizable features, you can ensure that keys are clearly identified. There’s no need to complicate keypads, why not make them easy enough for a child to use?


It’s no secret that children aren’t always the greatest caretakers of the property. Between spills, drops, and other accidents, kid-friendly products need to be able to withstand a beating. Custom silicone keypads are not only safe and easy to use, they are also one of the most durable components used to make keypads. SiTECH uses a unique injection molding process with Dow and GE Silicones to ensure that each keypad lasts throughout its product life.
