Identiv Intros Tamper-Proof RFID Labels for Anti-Counterfeiting, Brand Protection
Identiv has announced its Tamper-Proof RFID Label, the latest addition to its radio frequency identification (RFID), Near Field Communication (NFC) and inlay portfolio. The label, according to the company, is compatible with any NFC inlay.
The Tamper-Proof RFID Label integrates an aluminum-etched antenna and a tamper-proof release coating. The antenna bridge is designed to destruct if the label is torn from any applied surface, including glass, paper, plastic and other non-metal environments. The design renders it impossible to tear off the complete antenna or label, the company claims; once torn from an adhered surface, the label is no longer functional and cannot be reassembled. The destructive label is suitable for uses cases in which an end user needs to ensure an asset is genuine. After being removed, the label cannot be reapplied to a new, non-authentic product.
As a generic design, the secure labels work with most of Identiv's antenna sizes. The first available version is delivered with a die cut of 38 millimeters by 18 millimeters and either an NXP NTAG or iCODE SLIX chip. Other chips and antennas are available to meet various customer requirements.
"With the addition of this tamper-proof design, our tag portfolio grows to provide even more innovative RFID solutions for a variety of applications," said Stephane Ardiley, Identiv director of product management for credentials and transponders, in a prepared statement. "Beyond the traditional physical/visual security of anti-counterfeiting hologram tags, we've incorporated RFID technology to deliver a more secure, advanced inlay solution. Identiv's Tamper-Proof RFID Label brings peace of mind to our customers through an affordable, guaranteed destructible inlay solution."
The Identiv team is expert in designing and manufacturing high-frequency (HF) and ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) transponders for embedded use in everyday objects, like medical devices, books, toys, athletic apparel, perishable food items and pharmaceuticals. Transponder form factors include dry inlays, wet inlays, labels and tickets. Identiv's RFID, NFC and inlay portfolio delivers smart identities and security to the Internet of Things (IoT).
The new Tamper-Proof RFID Label joins the Identv's selection of cutting-edge, customizable RFID labels, including RFID Tag on Metal (TOM) Labels, and Giant NFC Labels, and complements Identiv's Tamper-Detection Tags. Identiv's Tamper-Proof RFID Labels are available now.
