Natural. Clean. And hi-tech.
The new sustainable ECO RFID Tag Technology is made for companies committed to environmental values. ECO RTT allows printing of an RFID label to a renewable paper, without plastic layers and harmful chemicals. Besides ecology, ECO stands for economy - it allows high volumes and high quality while being cost neutral.
Environmentally friendly materials – sustainable, renewable, no impact on existing waste streams or recycling
Excellent reliability with paper-based inlay
Excellent performance with printed antenna – 90-95% the performance of etched aluminum
Cost level of ECO tags is comparable to etched AL products, with a clear roadmap towards cost leadership
Fibre-based substrate enables new features – label can be embedded on package, made tamper-proof, non-transferable, re-pulpable
Stora Enso’s proprietary, patented ECO technology gives you an innovative and feasible alternative to traditional inlay manufacturing processes. It is a simple, high-speed and cost-efficient method.
All this is enabled with an additive, dry antenna manufacturing process, high-speed IC assembly and simplified label converting machine requiring fewer material layers.
ECO uses a sustainable fibre-based paper substrate and low-cost conductor that offers higher conductivity.
During conversion, the antenna paper substrate acts as a face material, enabling you to eliminate an extra face laminate layer.
ECO RFID tags are manufactured using an additive technology that requires only a small footprint. This means that you can locate all processes under one roof and compress the supply chain.
Simplified, high-capacity machinery reduces production costs. And a thin, inlay-less label structure lowers material and shipping costs.
