The Q2 shipments included the first volume orders earmarked for use in the denims category. Thinfilm expects a significant increase in demand for EAS tags during H2 2018.
Thinfilm also continues to make progress in the buildout of its web-based (R2R) line for the production of NFC (near field communication) tags. The first NFC-specific equipment is now onsite in San Jose, CA, and installation is underway. There are no material delays, and the company expects initial R2R production of NFC to begin by the end of Q3, on time.
