The new SlimFlex™ Tag, a highly durable UHF radio frequency identification (RFID) tag that enables users multiple mounting options for optimal read range in industrial applications.

Custom color options are available, and tags may be embossed or laser-engraved with a logo or message for branding or enhanced visual identification.
