An RFID tag that truly lives up to its name. The Universal RFID Hard Tag features surface-independent tags with a patent-pending inlay design used to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of the surface – metal, plastic, even wood. Along with the Universal RFID Asset Tag, these two products make up a revolutionary product line that allows you to use only one RFID tag for your asset tracking application.
The Universal RFID Hard Tag features impact-resistant housing combined with an ultrasonically welded seal that protects the subsurface printed label and RFID inlay from harsh environments including harmful UV rays. This durable product also withstands heavy impact and will read after resurfacing from submersion in over 20’ of water. The housing comes standard with two holes for mechanical fasteners; however, permanent pressure-sensitive adhesive is also available as an optional affixing method.
Unlike other RFID hard tags on the market, the Universal RFID Hard Tag’s clear housing allows customers to see the customized label inside. Our four-color processing capabilities allow you to promote your company with a label that shows off your company name or logo. Our digital printing process ensures even the most detailed logo will look crisp and clean.

Specifications and Ordering Information
.002” thick polypropylene or polyester label adhered to proprietary inlay wrapped around 1/16”closed cell foam
encased in impact-resistant polycarbonate housing.
Label Copy: The label copy may include block type, stylized type, logos or other designs. All copy, block type, stylized type, logos, designs, and bar code are subsurface printed. This unique process provides excellent resistance to solvents, caustics, acids and moderate abrasion.
Colors: Standard colors include black, red, yellow, green and blue. Due to contrast needed for the bar code scanner, all bar codes are black.
Serialization: Bar code and human-readable equivalent is produced using the latest high-resolution digital technology available, which provides excellent clarity and easy scanning.
Code 39 is the standard symbology and optional symbology is Code 128. The bar code and human readable can be programmed into the RFID inlay as long as the information is in decimal or nexadecimal format. The programmed information can be locked, which prevents the RFID inlay from being rewritten. We can enclode up to 24 characters into the RFID inlay. If desired, we can encode information that differs from the bar code and human readable.
Frequency: Custom designed UHF inlay uses Alien Higgs 3 chip optimized for use at 915 MHz.
Standard Sizes: 4 1/8” x 1 3/4”
Standard Adhesive: Mechanical fasteners (standard) and/or permanent pressure-sensitve adhesive (optional)
