Ostomy and Continence Components


Specialist manufacturers of ostomy and continence devices rely on PolarSeal to provide a host of die-cut and complex multi-layer components used in the manufacture of these essential products. We understand that product reliability and cost-effective solutions are vital in this competitive market, as well as the need for ongoing technical support for new product development to improve quality of life for stoma care patients.

Application overview

We manufacture and provide technical support for all your primary and secondary ostomy componentry including:

  • Adhesive filter covers
  • Carbon/charcoal filters to reduce odour
  • Bag tail components
  • Hook and loop closure systems
  • Hydrocolloid bag to body attachment pieces
  • Hydrocolloid flanges and washers
  • Non-woven tapes and die-cuts for body contact areas
  • Raw material film slitting

The need for skin-friendly adhesives is nowhere more important than in this field. Reliability during use is essential on the one hand, and low skin trauma during remove equally important due to the often long-term usage of these devices. For other non-skin contact components, we have developed specialist and technologically advanced high tack adhesives for attachment to low surface energy films typically used in these devices.
