HID Global and UPM Raflatac announced a worldwide technology license agreement that enables UPM Raflatac to incorporate HID Global’s tamper-proof and secure RFID sealing label technology and IP into their contactless product family.
The deal makes UPM Raflatac is the first company to offer HID’s secure RFID sealing solution worldwide, according to HID.
In the first phase of the agreement, UPM Raflatac will incorporate HID’s technology into tamper-proof RFID sealing tags for liquid containers to ensure the integrity and origin of the liquid in the container.
The tags also help prevent and identify the tampering and unauthorized refilling of containers by indicating when a container is opened or when attempts are made to remove the tag.
In the second phase of the agreement, UPM Raflatac will extend HID’s technology to other fields of use also covered by the license agreement, including consumer electronics and components, pharmaceutical packaging and vehicle identification.
