Tags like these can take almost anything you throw at them, including water, chemicals, pressure, heat, cold, impact etc (of course to a varying degree).

They are claimed to be compatible with all smart phones (Android and iOS verified) and they use NTAG or ICODE chips.

All can be encoded with a URI including a CliqTags URL (verified).

Due to large antennas they are very easy to read and write (verified), yet of course within the limitations of NFC.
