Silicone – Ostomy seal
To date, you have had a limited choice in ostomy seals for your stoma care. All current products comprise of a hydrocolloid formulation. All current products suffer from the same set of problems.
Hydrocolloid seals or rings absorb moisture (and body waste!). As the hydrocolloid ‘swells’ the seal around the stoma becomes better. Level of absorption therefore becomes one of the most important attributes of a hydrocolloid seal for stoma care.
Having an adhesive containing faeces and urine on your skin for lengthy periods of time is not a hygienic solution to protect against leakage. The removal of a hydrocolloid seal or ring is sometimes difficult due to the absorption of moisture (and body waste!) which leads to the breakdown and failure of the product. This results in the need to repeatedly clean the skin to remove residue and ensure correct fitment of your next ostomy appliance. All this makes stoma care that much harder.
Trio Siltac™ is a soft silicone ostomy seal that works completely differently. It does not absorb moisture or body waste; for the first time you can have a clean and hygienic seal. Trio Siltac™ seals have a natural tendency to return to their original shape when stretched. This means you simply stretch a Trio Siltac™ seal around your stoma, and shape to form a perfect custom fit. Trio Siltac™ removes in one piece leaving no residue – your pouch change regime can now be quicker, easier and cleaner.
