Metal can pose a serious problem to a RFID solution especially if you are trying to tag a metallic product. Selecting the proper RFID tag can be the most critical part of the design. I have found several good tags (inlays) from some of the top RFID manufacturers.
UPM Raflatac UHF Hammer Metal RFID Tag – Excellent performance in RFID near-metal applications
Confidex SteelWING – RFID label for metal surfaces
Avery Dennison AD-843 Metal RFID Tag – excellent direct-attach to metal performance
