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.

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.

For mobile monitoring, Lohmann offers medical adhesive tape solutions for removal and reattachment to your device as well as the skin surface, allowing for extended wear time.

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


Connected to a smartphone, CGM devices continuously monitor blood glucose levels and alert patients when blood glucose levels rise or fall too much. Our skin-friendly adhesive solution ensures comfortable wear for up to 21 days, helping to better manage the condition.

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 14 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 pumps deliver low doses of short-acting insulin when needed and triggered by the user and can form a closed system in combination with a CGM. Our breathable adhesive tape solutions ensure maximum comfort for the patient with a wear time of up to seven days.

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


Our disposable patch solutions feature repositionable adhesive tapes that ensure convenient application for self-injection of liquid medications (e.g. for cancer treatment) at home. Depending on the application, our product offers a suffiient wear time regardless of the application.

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


Connected to the user's smartphone via an app, devices for continuous temperature measurement help to detect ovulation and the most fertile days. Our adhesive solutions are not only skin-friendly, but also protect the skin as a barrier film against the printed electronics. The wear time is 5-7 days.
