A Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Tag is designed for threshold detection of certain chemical vapors. The vapor presence is signaled to the reader by a digital alert and communication between the tag and reader is not interrupted. The detection mechanism comprises an inkjet printed conducting track on an elastomer that swells in response to vapor exposure. The expanded track breaks and triggers a tamper detection circuit integrated into the RFID tag transponder chip
