Innovative and reliable adhesive solutions for ostomy applications

With over 20 years of experience, we offer adhesive solutions that serve as vital component parts for Ostomy products. Our materials have become an important and reliable choice for today's colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy applications, for various requirements such as skin contact, secure closure systems, heat-weldability, odor control, and fluid management. As a fully integrated supplier, we offer innovative, multifunctional products on rolls or as individual high-precision die-cuts that are value-engineered and purpose-designed. 

At Lohmann, we focus on functionality and biocompatibility in our medical-grade adhesives. We develop and test our adhesives to meet the highest standards and address specific application requirements. Our range of Ostomy adhesives is suitable for both two-piece and one-piece pouching systems. Whether you're working on a new application or looking to replace your existing one, we can recommend the best off-the-shelf solution or develop a custom-made one specifically tailored to your individual requirements. 


We understand that Ostomy bag raw materials are primarily selected for their barrier properties, often neglecting their ability to bond with adhesives. To overcome this challenge, Lohmann has developed a selection of adhesives that provide a strong bond to low surface energy materials. These adhesives are available as transfer films or coated to a range of carriers, including foams and films. Our Bonding Engineers thoroughly test the compatibility and reliability of our adhesives with the most commonly used bag materials.

All of our DuploMED® Ostomy products are biocompatible and manufactured to EN ISO 13485 standards, providing high-quality and reliable solutions for your Ostomy applications.

Lohmann solutions for ostomy devices

We offer a wide portfolio of adhesive solutions, components and material combinations for a variety of ostomy applications, for example:

  • Die-cut solutions for mounting charcoal filter 
  • Closure reinforcement systems, e.g. outlet stiffeners 
  • Pull tab solutions as die-cuts on rolls
  • Hook and Loop closure systems
  • Film, PE foam and non-woven solutions for bonding pouch to baseplate
  • Skin-friendly low trauma adhesives for body contact areas

Our adhesive solutions and manufacturing services bring safety, flexibility and reliability to ostomy devices and thus improve the comfort in daily life of stoma care patients. Get in contact with us to talk about your customized solution!


Base plate top cover fixation to bag

Maintaining a reliable bond between the ostomy bag and the baseplate and keeping its contents sealed is of vital importance. The baseplate acts as a crucial interface between the pouch and the user's skin and has to withstand constant movement. Therefore, establishing a reliable baseplate-to-bag bond is critical. We offer a wide range of solutions in PE Foams, EMA films and non-woven substrates to address this challenge.

Application example: Leak Detection Sensor

Sensors play a vital role in various applications, providing advanced functionality. For patients relying on ostomy bags, a secure and sealed connection between the bag and the skin is crucial. Any leakage can lead to unpleasant situations in daily life. That's why early leak detection is essential, as it provides sufficient time to replace the device or enhance the sealing mechanism.
