RFID or Radio Frequency Identification technology can be defined as a technology that uses electromagnetic radio-frequency to identify tags when near to a reader. One fine example of RFID technology is NFC or Near Field Communication. NFC can be said as a set of communication procedure between two electronic devices for establishing communication by bringing them within close proximity.
There are many applications of NFC used in our day to day lives. Some examples include NFC chips, NFC tag keychain, NFC cards, and many other devices. Depending upon the type of their use the devices are both read only or read/write only. Right from security applications to tagging products, almost everywhere NFC devices are used.
Also, the manufacturing of such NFC devices depends on the applications. Like NFC tag keychain can be used from storing data to simple tagging of products. The NFC tag keychain are generally manufactured of epoxy and PVC material. Both are widely used based on their applications; however there are some differences as well.
The most noteworthy feature of the NFC epoxy tags is the appearance. The epoxy tags are wear-resistant and waterproof, also the epoxy material providing the tags with multi-protective layers. Also, the different available chips of epoxy tags are: Topaz512, NTAG203, MFS50, I-CODE, etc. Each chip has its own memory or capacity. Also, the NFC epoxy tags working temperature also differs from -30℃ to 80℃.
Apart from this the NFC tag keychain comes in PVC tags as well. As the name suggests the PVC tags are made of PVC material. The features of such PVC tags include heat insulation, light weight, thermal insulation, easy construction, etc. The PVC chips can be said to act as a work base in the managing system of the user. PVC tags can be used in a wide range of applications including NFC tag stickers, PVC nametags, etc.
Recapitulating the aforementioned points the material for NFC tag keychain can be both epoxy and PVC depending upon the user preference. Also, the functionality and features play a vital role in deciding the type of material to be used. The size and design depends generally on the user’s need.
