The FT401 MAT seamlessly vulcanizes with the mat during production without any preparation work required. Simply place the FT401 MAT at the mat’s bottom prior to vulcanization and it will completely fuse with the rubber mat.
The FT401 MAT doesn’t add any unnecessary thickness and can only be removed by cutting the mat. Most importantly, since the tag is not sandwiched between layers of rubber, there is no risk of a blister effect (delamination between tag and rubber) that could weaken the mat’s mechanical strength.
In addition, due to the significant difference in dielectric values between textile fibers and rubber, using a standard UHF laundry tag in a mat will result in suboptimal electrical performance, as it was specifically designed to function properly in the presence of textile fibers. This will significantly reduce the performances of the tag in both single read and bulk reading configurations. Upon contact with rubber, the FT401 MAT delivers optimized reading results that are comparable to the highest performing UHF LaundryChips, making it appropriate for all UHF reading applications in a laundry environment.
