RFID tags can attach to different surface types using a variety of mounting techniques. Depending on the material, improper attachment can cause read rates to decline, impacting user ability to track and manage assets.
- Film Adhesive
Film adhesive is quick and easy to apply. It is the least expensive method and, as a result, it is used in the majority of RFID tags today. It is especially useful for fixed assets.
- Foam Adhesive
Foam adhesive is a more rugged solution. It is stronger than film and the preferred application technique for more durable assets but also for those that remain fixed.
- Epoxy Adhesive
Epoxy adhesive is the strongest adherent, typically utilized to cover embedded tags or affix tags to assets that experience significant travel and wear-and-tear.
Screw and/or rivet adhesive is often used in tandem with a more durable tag and requires tools to affix and remove.
- Wire/Cable Tie
Wire and cable ties are implemented when the above options are not workable. This method works well for unusually shaped items, like cables and other hard-to-tag items, but it is not very durable.
