Vulcan RFID Custom Flex Hard Tag



Vulcan RFID Custom Flex Hard Tag

The Vulcan RFID Custom Flex Hard Tag has been specifically designed for assets that need a rugged, yet flexible, polymer RFID tag that is more cost effective than traditional hard tags and has reliable, consistent read range performance. Reusable containers, pallets and other mobile assets are exposed to a wide variety of environment and working conditions. Abrasion, UV exposure, dirt and moisture can affect the durability and longevity of your RFID tags.The Flex Hard Tag is made of high performance, pliable polyester that provides more strength and rigidity than a traditional RFID polyester label but is more formable than a metal or hard plastic tag. The Flex Hard Tag is ideal for returnable pallets, plastic crates, containers, utility poles, or for embedding in injected molded products.
