Thin UHF Tag for Difficult Surfaces.

Smartrac’s ON-METAL TAG is designed for tagging metal objects and surfaces, as well as challenging non-metal objects. The thin, soft and flexible tag structure ideally suits curved and flat surfaces, and offers converters huge opportunities to create attractive solutions for end users.

This printable, ON-METAL TAG enables applications that were not possible earlier with traditional UHF inlays, and offers the possibility to easily print and encode the product with standard RFID printers on-site. It delivers excellent performance on metal surfaces and liquid-filled bottles with a read-range of up to 3.5 meters. Furthermore, the tag features traceable and secure TID serialization. It is available in ETSI (for Europe) and FCC (for America and Asia) frequency bands. Smartrac’s design and manufacturing expertise developed the thin ON-METAL TAG, at 600μm ± 10 %, which not only protects the print heads of RFID printers, but also ensures optimum converting properties and usability. The product is delivered in wet format as a single-row at 500-unit reel with reliable adhesion for demanding surfaces. A clean gap between the tags makes it user-friendly, suitable for automated applicators, and minimizes waste at the point of use.

Tight quality control compliant with ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management and ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management ensures a reliable and state-of-theart product that meets a variety of application needs, enhancing RFID usage for difficult surroundings and surfaces.
