Schreiner PrinTrust – RFID solution for precious books
GERMANY •The new ((rfid))-Archive Label developed by Schreiner enables the application of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology also to precious and sensitive books. This makes it possible for libraries to comprehensively manage their collections using contactless technology.
Efficient management of ordinary books using RFID technology has long been standard practice. Due to its product design, the new RFID label now meets the requirements for application even to precious and sensitive books and documents. A pH-neutral, and thus acid-free, adhesive will not attack the valuable documents and makes non-residual removal of the label possible even after decades. In addition, being certified according to ISO 9706, the label meets all the prerequisites for archival-grade materials like books, papers, manuscripts, maps, drawings, pictures, photographs, newspapers, magazines, sheet music or patents.
A special high-performance adhesive that can be non-residually removed even after a long period of time ensures optimum protection of the precious objects which often are of historic value. In addition, the labels include an age-resistant paper that does not affect the tagged items in any way. As a result, irreversible damage to the archived documents is avoided even after decades-long application of the labels. The entire product has been tested and certified according to ISO 9706 requirements. The memory of the RFID transponder utilized in the label has a guaranteed life of 50 years, making it suitable even for long-term use.
