Stick & Staple RFID Tag


  • Ideal for applications involving wood (pallets, crates, barrels, etc) or cardboard
  • Digital printing process provides for greater print capability with logos or special designs, ensuring crisp details on even the most complex logos for maximum clarity.
  • Meets EPCglobal Gen2 (V 1.2.0) as well as ISO/IEC 18000-6C:2004/Amd 1:2006 (type C and update of Types A and B).
  • Compatible with RFID Tracking Software

Perfect for applications that need a bit more than just adhesive, Metalcraft’s Stick and Staple RFID Tag attaches directly to assets with adhesive with the added option of stapling the tag, ensuring the tag stays attached to those hard-to-adhere surfaces while not damaging the inlay.

Specifications Data
Material2.3 white mil polypropylene
SerializationBar code and human-readable equivalent is produced using the latest high-resolution digital technology available, which provides excellent clarity and easy scanning. Code 39 is the standard symbology with a range of 2.7 to 9.4 CPI (characters per inch). Optional symbology is Code 128, I 2 of 5, 2D DataMatrix and QR Code.
Label CopyThe label copy may include block type, stylized type, logos or other designs. All copy, block type, stylized type, logos, designs, and bar code are subsurface printed. This unique process provides excellent resistance to solvents, caustics, acids and moderate abrasion.
ColorsStandard colors include black, red, yellow, green, dark blue, orange, purple or blue. Custom spot colors are also available at no additional charge. Due to contrast needed for the bar code scanner, all bar codes are black.
Standard AdhesivePermanent acrylic adhesive
Frequency RangeUHF = 860-960 MHz; HF = 13.56 MHz
Sizes4" x 2" (size must include a 1/2” blank border on all sides to protect inlay from staples)
PackagingProduced and shipped in roll form.
Destructive Test Summary
Burst strength - 1” wide strip of the tag that included the inlay was stapled to a wooden block and peeled at 180 degrees/12 inches per minute with the iMass SP-2100 peel and adhesion tester. Goal was to determine the static peak peel value at the point the staple pulled through the tag to determine a burst strength or tensile strength value of durability. A burst strength of more than 10 lbs. was needed to affect the tag.

Temperature Test Summary
Sample showed no deterioration after being subject to -40°F for 24 hours, and the inlay was still readable with a handheld reader prior to removal from the freezer. Samples showed no deterioration when exposed to 150°F, 200°F, and 250° for 1 hour each. Sample started showing discoloration after exposure to 300°F for 1 hour, and melted after exposure to 350°F for 1 hour. The inlay was readable after exposure to 300°F, but was not readable after exposure to 350°F.
