Medical Skin Adhesives for Daily and Clinical Use

Pulse Oxymetry

DermaMed provides low-trauma adhesive solutions for pulse oximetry devices that can be applied to the most sensitive, fragile skin and repositioned as needed without leaving behind residue. 

Our medical skin adhesives contain a blend of polymers that is gentle on the skin and contains fewer plasticizers, leading to less skin stripping than traditional products. By investing in our pulse oximetry adhesive products, you can help ensure accurate readings and maintain patient comfort levels over long-term use.

Wound Care

DermaMed’s specialty wound care adhesives are designed for a broad array of applications, from acute surgical incisions to long-term wound healing. 

We strive to provide the absolute best experience possible for all levels of wound care. Our team of engineer’s partners with you to create one-of-a-kind medical skin adhesives that secure the skin and promote healing and breathability for optimal wound healing. In addition, our adhesives are designed with comfort and convenience in mind.

Wearable Devices

DermaMed wearable device adhesive solutions include woven, non-woven, and film skin contact tapes that accommodate a range of release times. We’ll customize wearable adhesives that are biocompatible, skin-friendly, and pressure-sensitive.

Our medical adhesives have a low-allergen profile and can be used for short-term and long-term applications. Our specialized formulas provide superior adhesion, breathability, and comfort to keep patients comfortable while wearing the device over extended periods. Our custom solutions are designed to meet both performance and cost goal.


Some of the latest low surface energy (LSE) plastics require adhesives that can form a strong bond with the material and require specialty pressure-sensitive adhesive solutions. DermaMed produces adhesive transfer tapes and double-coated tapes. Pressure-sensitive adhesives are available in woven, non-woven, film, and foam materials.

Low Trauma

From temporarily attaching an IV drip to securing wound dressings, there is a wide range of medical applications that require low trauma adhesive tapes that are pressure sensitive, repositionable, and comfortable. Low trauma adhesives with short-term release times are produced with fragile, sensitive skin in mind.


Specialty adhesive tapes used to assemble diagnostic devices require specific properties to ensure that there is no interference with the delicate assays found in IVD devices and diagnostic products.

Consumer Products

From specialty adhesives with unidirectional elasticity for nasal strips to tension relief tapes designed for scar therapy, DermaMed produces consumer adhesive products for over-the-counter use. We bring deep industry knowledge and experience to act as a resource to support your development of leading-edge solutions, including CBD-infused products to scented breathing strips and patches for Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) systems.
