Trio Silvex Silicone Convex Ostomy Seals 20 – 30mm (Pack of 10)
The Trio Silvex Silicone Convex Ostomy Seals 20 – 30mm (Pack of 10) is a box of ten soft convex silicone ostomy seals for 20 – 30mm stomas. These silicone seals are ideal for anyone who finds creases or contours near their stoma cause their ostomy bag to leak.
Who Are the Silvex Box of 10 Silicone Convex Seals For?
These convex 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:
These seals are particularly effective for anyone who finds that creases or contours near to their stoma allow their ostomy pouch to leak.
How Can the Silvex Silicone Convex 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
- Close conformity to fill in creases and contours
- 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 skin
How Do These Seals Work?
The silicone of these ostomy seals naturally returns to shape meaning they can simply be stretched around the stoma and shrink in to form the perfect fit. This means that exposed skin can be minimised within the seal to prevent skin irritation. The convex shape and greater width of these seals allows them to more closely follow creases and contours, further reducing the risk of leaks.
How Do the Silvex 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 comfort and security, as well as the lifespan of the ostomy pouch.
The natural flexibility of this material also allows the Silvex Silicone Convex Seals to be applied closely with minimal probing or moulding. Their convex shape adds to this effect by hugging creases and contours as closely as is possible.
Which Sizes are Available?
There are two sizes of Silvex Silicone Convex Seals Available:
- Silvex Silicone Convex Seals (20 – 30mm)
- Silvex Silicone Convex Seals (30 – 40mm)
Are These Seals Clean and Hygienic?
Yes, the Silvex Silicone Ostomy Seals are designed to make any ostomy routine as clean, hygienic and discreet as is possible.
Will These Seals Prevent an Ostomy Pouch from Leaking?
These 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.
The convex shape of these seals makes them an ideal solution for those who find other ostomy pouch seals do not fully prevent bodily waste from leaving the pouch through creases and contours in the skin.
Can These Ostomy Seals be Used at Night?
The Silvex Silicone Convex Seals are designed to last the same amount of time as the ostomy pouch in order to keep its seal firm even at the most vulnerable times, such as during sleep. These seals should give ostomates the security to sleep through the night without anxiety about their pouch leaking.
How Are the Silvex Silicone Convex 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 the forefingers
- Gently attach the pouch onto the seal as normal
How are the Ostomy Seal and Bag Removed?
There is no need to change a standard routine when removing the ostomy seal and bag. When removed the ostomy pouch the seal will come off in one piece, leaving no residue. This allows for a quick, easy and clean pouch change.
Do these Ostomy Seals Absorb Moisture?
The silicone of these seals does not absorb moisture or body waste from the 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.
