Skin-friendly bonding solutions for the medical industry 

In the adhesives industry, there is probably no field more demanding than bonding to skin. As a living organ, the skin is exposed to constant changes and shifting external influences. It has low surface energy, rough texture and produces sweat. With the help of our "Smart Bonding Approach", we tailor our solution exactly to your individual applications and requirements.

Our biocompatible high-performance products are tailored to the needs of sensitive and stressed skin (elderly, children or athletes) and offer high breathability, water resistance and can be removed without residue or pain.

At Lohmann, we believe in co-creation and support medical device manufacturers worldwide realize innovative products. Recently, we helped SteadySense, an innovative sensor patch producer, to create a non-invasive product for continuous monitoring of body temperature. The health patch adds significant value to thermal monitoring applications, from patient monitoring to female ovulation.

We are proud that we have been able to offer a wide range of services from our value chain, from product development, material selection and die-cutting to automated packaging solutions.


Bonding wearables

Lohmann's adhesive solutions for medical wearables applications offer high adhesive strength for strong connections - from the very first moment. Thanks to their low peel strength, they can be repositioned and removed easily. Slippage during injections is prevented thanks to good shear strength.

Health Patch

When using health patches over a longer period of time, e.g. for measuring cardiac telemetry, precise positioning of the device is necessary. For this application, Lohmann offers medical adhesive tapes that allow painless and residue-free removal and repositioning on the skin to ensure optimal measurement results.

Your advantages:

  • High adhesive strength of the tape on the skin ensures strong attachment of the wearable from the first moment
  • Increased patient comfort due to flexible material
  • The double-sided adhesive tape with its thin PET carrier acts as a protective film between the skin and the printed electronics
  • Advanced functional integration and manufacturing technlogies

Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM)

CGM devices require a reliable and durable stick-to-skin patch to provide reliable results over a long wear time. Lohmann offers a solution for this requirement: a skin adhesive with a wear time of 21 days, improving the overall wearing comfort and the customer experience.

Your benefits:

  • The high adhesive strength of the tape on the skin ensures a strong attachment of the wearable from the first moment onwards
  • Strong adhesive strength ensures wearability for more than 21 days
  • Highly flexible backing material allows the patch to adapt to the movements of the skin and thus reduce skin irritation during the wear time
  • Good breathability of the adhesive tapes used allows moisture to escape optimally

Insulin Patch Pumps

A key requirement for bonding of insulin patch pumps is zero movement of the bond during injection. By combining flexibility and reliable skin adhesives, Lohmann fullfills this industry need. Our breathable adhesive tape solutions ensure the maximum comfort for the patient, with a wear time of up to 72 hours.

Your advantages:

  • Increased patient comfort due to flexible material
  • Double-sided adhesive tapes provide a strong bond between the device and the adhesive tape on the skin side
  • High breathability of the skin-side adhesive tape allows moisture to escape optimally during use and the skin to breathe
  • Good shear strength of the adhesive tape prevents slipping of the wearable during injection

Large Volume Injector

Our single-use patch solutions for large volume injectors are equipped with repositionable tapes, ensuring a comfortable use for the self-injection of liquid drugs (e.g. for cancer treatment) at home. Depending on your application, our product offers wear durations from 10 minutes to 2 hours.

Your advantages:

  • High adhesive strength of the tape to the skin ensures strong attachment from the first moment of use
  • Low peel strength for easy removal after use
  • Repositionable adhesive tape for optimal adhesion
  • Good shear strength of the tape prevents slippage of the wearable during injection

Continuous Temperature Measurement

Devices which continuously monitor body parameters, such as temperature, especially require a reliable bond. While ensuring the close contact of the sensors to skin, our skin-friendly bonding solution have also an integrated barrier film to the printed electronics for skin protection.

Your advantages:

  • DuploMED® 8411: Adhesive on the skin side, including a thin PET backing, acts as a barrier film to protect the skin from the printed electronics
  • DuploMED® ELE 77300 / DuploMED® 22260: Barrier to protect electronics from external influences such as temperature and water
