Trio Siltac Silicone Ostomy Seals 20 – 28mm (Pack of 30)
The Trio Siltac Silicone Ostomy Seals 20 – 28mm (Pack of 30) is a box of thirty soft silicone ostomy seals for 20 – 28mm stomas. These silicone seals do not absorb moisture and so protect the skin without breaking down or seepage, to safeguard ostomates’ comfort and security.
Who Are the Siltac Box of 30 Silicone Ostomy Seals For?
These silicone ostomy seals are designed to prevent skin irritation and pouch leakage for those with a stoma and ostomy bag. They are therefore perfect for anyone who has undergone any of the following:
How Can the Siltac Silicone Ostomy Seals Help?
These ostomy seals have been developed to provide the most easy, secure and hygienic ostomy pouch experience possible. Their silicone material holds a range of properties to facilitate this experience:
- Flexible and stretchy to offer a bespoke fit to any stoma
- Allows peristomal skin (the skin around the stoma) to breathe, minimising sweating and leakages
- Does not absorb moisture or waste to prevent the degradation of the ostomy seal
- Sticks to skin immediately for a quick and hygienic application
- Comes off in a single piece without leaving a residue or damaging the skin
How Do These Seals Work?
The silicone of these ostomy seals naturally returns to shape meaning they can be simply stretched around the stoma and they will shrink in to form the perfect fit. This means that exposed skin within the seal can be minimised to prevent skin irritation.
How Do the Siltac Silicone Seals Differ from Other Ostomy Seals?
Unlike conventional hydrocolloid seals, the silicone of these ostomy seals does not absorb moisture or body waste. This prevents them from breaking down in order to maximise the ostomates’ comfort and security, as well as the lifespan of the ostomy pouch.
The natural flexibility of this material also allows the Siltac Silicone Ostomy Seals to be applied closely with minimal probing and moulding.
Which Sizes Are Available?
There are three sizes of Siltac Silicon Ostomy Seals available:
- Trio Siltac Silicone Ostomy Seals (20 – 28mm)
- Trio Siltac Silicone Ostomy Seals (28 – 35mm)
- Trio Siltac Silicone Ostomy Seals (35 – 44mm)
Please note that each pack includes 30 seals.
Are These Seals Clean and Hygienic?
Yes, these seals are clean and hygienic. The Siltac Silicone Ostomy Seals are designed to make any ostomy routine as clean, hygienic and discreet as is possible.
Will the Seals Prevent an Ostomy Pouch From Leaking?
The seals have been designed in the knowledge that stomas are likely to be on a part of the body that is constantly moving and creasing. By not absorbing any moisture or body waste, and by minimising seal related sweat around the stoma, they prevent the seal from degrading and leaking. Their flexible material should also maintain a firm seal in spite of movement or creasing.
Can The Ostomy Seals be Used at Night?
The Siltac Silicone Ostomy Seals are designed to last the same amount of time as an ostomy pouch in order to keep its seal firm even at the most vulnerable times, such as during sleep. These seals should give an ostomate the security to sleep through the night without anxiety about their pouch leaking.
How are the Siltac Silicone Ostomy Seals Applied?
- Clean the skin around the stoma with warm water and dry completely
- Ease the seal out of its packet and remove gently with a thumb and forefinger
- Stretch the seal around the stoma, and release it so that it can return to shape
- Mould the seal to a close and perfect fit with forefingers
- Gently attach the pouch onto the seal as normal
How Are the Ostomy Seal and Bag Removed?
There is no need to change from a standard routine when removing the ostomy seal and bag. When the ostomy pouch is removed the seal will come off in one piece, leaving no residue. This allows for a quick, easy and clean pouch change.
Do the Ostomy Seals Absorb Moisture?
The silicone of these seals does not absorb moisture or body waste from the ostomy bag. This has two key consequences: the first is that each seal remains hygienic until the pouch needs to be removed. This reduces seepage to ensure comfort and discretion.
The second is that the seal itself will not break down. This eliminates stickiness while minimising the risk of skin irritation. Since it holds firm for a longer period of time, this also maximises the wear time of bag.
