22mm On-Metal NTAG213

  • Strong scan distance for a small tag
  • ID/QR print available
  • Can be used on both metal and non-metal surfaces
A 22mm white face NTAG213 tag for use on both metal and non-metal surfaces. This is a high quality label using a specially tuned antenna and high performance ferrite barrier material to achieve strong ScanStrength from a smaller package.

This tag replaces the 19x19mm on-metal tag (ST730) as a stock product. It's designed for metal surfaces and can be used on both metal and non-metal. However, if you do not intend to use the tag - or may not use the tag - on metal surfaces then we recommend going for a standard 22mm White NFC label.

Supplied on reels of up to 2,000 in larger orders or strips of 5 in smaller quantities. Can be supplied on smaller reels if required, just let us know. This product is also available in custom print for larger orders over 5,000 units. For smaller on-metal custom printed orders, we suggest our on-metal NFC asset tags.

This product can also be supplied quickly from stock with a simple black ID print or QR code print. Order online or contact us for more information.

On-Metal Tags Explained

Normal NFC tags do not work when placed directly onto metal surfaces. Therefore, when using NFC tags on metal you either need to create a gap of at least 0.5 cm between the tag and the metal or you can use a special tag - called an 'on-metal' tag - which has an additional ferrite barrier material between the NFC tag and the adhesive. 

On-metal tags will work on both metal and non-metal surfaces. However, on-metal tag scan distances always tend to be slightly less than standard NFC tags so unless you need tags that will (or might) go on metal, we would strongly recommend that you go with standard tags. 

For more information and details of how on-metal tags compare with normal tags, read our on-metal NFC tag guide
