Avery Dennison Releases White Paper on RFID Isolating Material Performance

Avery Dennison Performance Tapes, which introduced its ShieldSense RFID Blocking Material in May 2019, has announce the release of a white paper that examines the use of RFID technology in inventory management. The document discusses the available isolating materials that can help maximize the technology's effectiveness.

The white paper, titled "Attenuation Performance of RFID Isolating Materials" and written by Brad Cumby, a senior RFID research engineer at Avery Dennison, explores the challenges that retailers face in using RFID signals to manage inventory levels. As these signals may penetrate most walls, floors and ceilings, accurate data gathering can be an issue for end users. Performance is subject to factors such as interference, frequencies, power and environments.

Avery's white paper examines the use of various aluminum-based shielding products, including foil tape, conductive paint, foil radiant barrier insulation and conductive cloth. In reviewing these products, the paper compares installation factors such as install time and effectiveness. It also provides recommendations for choosing a shielding product based on whether an application is a new construction or a retrofit, as well as ease of use and impact on total costs. Installation examples are provided.

"RFID technology has become a popular method of providing fast and accurate inventory not only in retail environments, but in virtually any inventory management application," Cumby said in a prepared statement. "This white paper was written to help current and potential RFID users understand how to maximize their RFID experience by shielding specific spaces, as well as making the most cost-effective, reliable shielding choice for their particular application."

The white paper may be downloaded for free at Avery Dennison's website.
