RFID Tags for Metal Surfaces

Durable RFID tags with superior read range on metal surfaces

Our line of durable on-metal RFID tags and labels are perfect for your metal surface application projects.  Designed to work on a variety of metal surfaces, our on-metal RFID tags work well for asset tagging, work-in-process and returnable container applications. Our mount-on-metal tags are available in on-site printable and preprint constructions so we can fit any requirement for on-demand printing and asset tracking projects.  

Developed using the same premise as our original, the smaller EU Mini utilizes a patented inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain incredible read ranges on a variety of different materials in the European frequency band (ETSI Band) - metal, plastic, even wood.

The European Universal RFID Asset Tag is a surface-independent tag that uses a unique inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of the surface – metal, plastic, even wood - allowing you to use only one RFID tag for your asset tracking application.

A versatile and affordable RFID tag made in the USA to fit a wide array of on-metal and standard applications, the Universal MC RFID Tag is available both preprinted and onsite printable to handle whatever asset tagging application you have.

The Universal RFID Hard Tag features impact-resistant housing combined with an ultrasonically welded seal protects the subsurface printed label and RFID inlay from harsh environments including harmful UV rays. Affixing methods include mechanical fasteners and/or adhesive.

The On-Site Printable Universal Mini RFID Tag is specifically designed to allow easy printing and encoding of RFID tags on-demand, providing a reliable, cost-effective solution for your on-site RFID printing.

Measuring 1 7/8" x 5/8", the Universal Micro RFID Tag is a great solution to your identification projects that require a small RFID tag with great read range. With a tiny footprint and low profile, the Universal Micro RFID Tag easily fits where other tags are too big and obtrusive.

With a smaller footprint and lower profile than the original Universal RFID Asset Tag, the Universal Mini RFID Tag easily fits in smaller places where other tags may be too large.

This revolutionary product line features surface-independent tags with a patented inlay designed to obtain excellent read range regardless of the surface - metal, plastic, even wood.
