The UHF Gen2 printable mini mount on metal tag uses a patented inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of the surface metal, plastic, even wood.
It features a small footprint and low profile and easily fits where other tags may be too large and obtrusive and still gives incredible read ranges compared to other tags in its class.
The mini surface-independent tag uses a patented inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of the surface metal, plastic, even wood. The unique inlay adheres to a subsurface printed label constructed of durable, yet flexible polyester. This process protects the copy, logo and/or bar code against moderate solvents and caustics/acids while our four-color processing capabilities allow you to promote your company. Our digital printing process ensures even the most detailed logos will look crisp and clean.
- Smaller footprint and lower profile while still achieving excellent read range sets this product apart from others
- Patented inlay design obtains excellent read ranges regardless of surface–metal , plastic, even wood
- Thermal transfer printer receptive ; For best results the Zebra R110 X i4 printer is recommended
Construction: Thermal transfer printable substrate options of polyester or paper.
Frequency: Custom designed UHF inlay uses Alien Higgs 3 chip optimized for use between 902 to 928 MHz.
Ribbon Recommendations: Metal craft recommends using a hybrid wax/resin ribbon for the paper face. For the polyester face we recommend a full resin ribbon or other ribbon that is compatible with synthetic film.
Standard Adhesive: Pressure-sensitive acrylic (MC778), .002” thick supported by a liner. Very high peel strength that provides excellent resistance to heat and chemicals. Withstand temperatures from -40°F to 300°F (intermittent). Shelf life of 24 months when stored at 72°F (22°C) and 50% relative humidity.
Shipment: Next day shipping available. Dependent on order quantity and inventory.
These tests were conducted for a limited period of time in strict laboratory conditions. In order to achieve maximum satisfaction we highly recommend that any customer considering use of this product test the labels in the environment in which they will be used. Tests were conducted for inlay and adhesion, not for print readability.
High – temperature resistance test – These tags were attached to a sheet of glass at raised temperatures for 10 minutes. Tags were then removed from the oven and tested for readability immediately.
Low-temperature resistance test – UHF Gen2 printable mini mount on metal tag were attached to a sheet of glass at low temperatures outdoors. Tags were then checked for readability with a Motorola handheld RFID reader. Tags survived and were readable for 19 hours in Iowa winter conditions with temperatures between -21 to -26°F with no signs of failure.

Inlay and Adhesive Chemical Soak Test – The Onsite Printable Mini mount on metal tags were attached to a sheet of glass submerged in various chemicals for a 3 week period. Observations were made at the following intervals: 2 hours, 24 hours, 1 week, 2 weeks, and 3 weeks. A Motorola handheld RFID reader was used to test the samples.
|2 Hours||24 Hours||1 Week||2 Week||3 Week|
|Glass Cleaner||N.E||N.E||N.E||**||Tag peeled
|N.E||N.E||No read||No read||No read;

** = RFID tag read with difficulty (significantly lower hits /second)
Read Range Test – In many cases the tags read intermittently for longer distances than those indicated, however, the results reported below were for continuously responding reads.
