ZipNFC White PVC 25mm REVERSE anti-metal Round tags using the latest NXP® NTAG213 chip and have a protective anti-metal layer so can be used near metal surfaces.
Typical anti-metal stickers have a sticky ferrite layer that is expected to be placed or stuck on metal surfaces and the other side will be tapped on by the mobile or reading device. REVERSE anti-metal NFC stickers would normally be placed inside cases where the antenna is place against a plastic surface and the anti-metal protection is provided against metal or electrical circuits in side. Other uses might be where you have a poster in a metal case and you would place the sticky side on the back of the poster where the tag will get tapped, but the back is against the metal casing and is protected.
They are basially the same, but the layers are structured differently. Pease see the pictures of the layers for comparison.

We have introduced a new range of NFC Tamperproof Stickers that continue to work, but provide an indicator as to whether the item has been opened or not. This is done by a unique antenna system and the NXP NTAG213TT chip. The chip has the same compatibility as the NTAG213 so is compatible with all mobiles on the market enabling the validation of an item using a standard mobile device either Adnroid, Windows or App that has NFC capability built in.
If you do not get us to encode these for you, you can encode them yourself using an Android NFC enabled mobile and the NXP TagWriter tool. You just need to write a URL and choose the Configure Mirror Options and then on the next form select NTAG213TagTamper as your tag type and just accept the defaults initially. Onc
