New skin adhesive with an extended wear time of 28+ days for wearable devices

There is probably no area in the adhesive industry that is more demanding than adhesion to skin. Subjected to constant change and fluctuating external influences, such as sweat, moisture or shear force due to sportive activities – a safe and reliable skin adhesive is a key requirement for device manufacturers.

Lohmann's new 28+ days longwear skin adhesive enables cost-reduction and sustainability in medical wearables applications

The new longwear skin adhesive DuploMED® 85300 from Lohmann offers the answer to these requirements: a water resistant and breathable medical grade adhesive with high flexibility. The new technology enables wearable devices, such as CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) applications, post-surgery recovery or long wear cardiac monitoring, to be worn longer and, therefore, pay towards sustainability and patient‘s comfort. With an outstanding wear time of 28 days (and beyond), the adhesive tape offers a high level of comfort and can be removed painlessly for the majority of trial participants. After the desired wearing time, it can be removed without residue. The skin adhesive is certified as biocompatible according to ISO 10993.

In addition to our tapes for shorter wear times, DuploMED® 85300 now offers a 28+ day wear time. This makes it perfect for longwear applications such as CGM devices. For applications with shorter wear time (e.g. insulin pumps, smart health patches or continuous temperature measurement) our wearables portfolio also offers the right product.
