UPM Raflatac To Offer HID Global’s RFID Technology

HID Global and UPM Raflatac recently announced a worldwide technology license agreement that enables UPM Raflatac to incorporate HID Global’s tamperproof and secure RFID sealing label technology and IP into their contactless product family. UPM Raflatac is the first company to offer HID’s secure RFID sealing solution worldwide.

“UPM Raflatac has pioneered the RFID retail and logistics market during the last ten years and has achieved a leading market position,” said Samuli Strömberg, vice president of marketing for RFID at UPM Raflatac. “The worldwide licensing agreement with HID Global solidifies our commitment to offering world-class secure sealing solutions.”

“HID Global’s intellectual property portfolio continues to grow due to an increased emphasis on protecting our innovation as well as a number of mergers and acquisitions”, said Dr. Tam Hulusi, senior vice president for  Strategic Innovation and Intellectual Property at HID Global. “As part of our Genuine HID™ mission to continually create and enhance customer value, HID extends technology licensing opportunities to partners assisting them in meeting and exceeding their customers’ evolving requirements.”

For HID Global, the licensing agreement is part of its ongoing general patent portfolio licensing and Genuine HID initiatives. In the first phase of the agreement, UPM Raflatac will incorporate the licensed technology into tamperproof RFID sealing tags for liquid containers.

The RFID tags will be used to ensure the integrity and origin of the liquid in the container. These tags 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.
