RFID
Today, RFID tags are being utilized for multiple applications to enable more effective tracking, more convenient access and simpler user control. Generally, RFID tags are small objects – such as an adhesive sticker or miniaturized implantable chip – that can be attached to or incorporated into a product for tracking and identification purposes. From pet tracking to electronic toll collection to automotive smart keys, RFID systems are part of our everyday lives, which makes reliability and high performance critical.   
RFID tags consist of a graphic overlay and inlay. The inlay is the functional component of the tag and contains the die and the antenna. Critical to RFID assembly integrity and robust in-field performance are the adhesives used for their construction. Henkel’s portfolio of LOCTITE®-brand adhesives offers the material capabilities required for modern, cost-effective RFID manufacture.
