FAQs of HUAYUAN Linen RFID Tags

RFID (radio frequency identification) linen tags, also known as RFID laundry tags, are small electronic devices that can be sewn into or attached to linens and textiles to enable tracking and identification.

RFID linen tags contain a tiny RFID chip and antenna that allow them to transmit data wirelessly to RFID readers. Each tag has a unique ID code that is detected when the tag passes within range of a reader.

In commercial laundry, hospitality, healthcare, apparel, and other industries, RFID linen tags are emerging as an efficient way to automate linen management processes. RFID linen tags provide visibility into the usage and status of tagged linens. This allows organizations to optimize linen inventories, prevent loss, increase turnover efficiency, and improve customer service.

RFID linen tags are designed to withstand repeated industrial laundry processes involving very high temperatures, detergents, bleaches and various mechanical stresses. HUAYUAN HLT laundry tags are qualified, robust, flexible and soft for fitting all kinds of textiles. Rigid, and robust enough to suffer heavy physical strength and pressure; heat resistant for over 180°C in washing in detergent, and over 210°C ironing; last through at least 200 wash cycles.

RFID linen tag is an ideal device for tracking and tracing textiles assets. Welcome to contact us to get more about automating your linen tracking through RFID technology.

Stitch Tagging (SE) // HLT-5512-SE / HLT-7015-SE

To be stitched into the hem of a textile.
* How to stitch?
1, Place the laundry tag inside the textile. Sewing lines surround tag’s extremities.
2, Stay less than 5mm from the tag’s edge when stitching.
3, Pay special attention to not damage your sewing facility if you stitch over the antenna wire extremities. Stitch must NEVER pass through the core module.
* Where to stitch?
A. Stitching at both ends of tag, avoid crossing the metal antenna line.
B. Sewing three sides without pricking the metal antenna of horizontal long side.
C. Putting the tag into a pouch/pocket.

Heat Sealing (HS) // HLT-5512-HS / HLT-7015-HS

The max. temperature for iron and heat-seal is +210°C (410°F) by 0.6MPa~0.8MPa pressure for less than 18 seconds, and the ironing pressure should be concentrated on the tag.


* How to heat-sealed?
1, Place clean and dry textiles under the heat-sealing machine.
2, Place the adhesive side of the tag on textile flat surface, avoiding any relief and folding lines.

In Pouch (PO) // HLT-5512-PO / HLT-7015-PO

To be stitched like a standard care label.
* How to stitch?
Place the pouch BELOW the hem. Fix the pouch BELOW the hem. Fix the pouch one along each side. Stitches must NEVER pass over the laundry tag’s antenna wire or the core module.
