Who Can Use Silex Flange Extenders?

These flange extenders are built to provide versatile support to any ostomy bag. They are, therefore, perfect for anyone who has undergone a:

  • Colostomy
  • Urostomy
  • Ileostomy

How Can the Silex Silicone Flange Extenders Help?

The Silex Silicone Flange Extenders give supplementary support to leaky or insecure ostomy pouches, so ostomates can feel comfortable and secure. Their construction targets a variety of areas to ensure a seamless experience:

  • Built from non-absorbent silicone to avoid breakdown even in hot climates or when swimming and bathing
  • Features high tack adhesion for the most secure fit possible
  • Built from a flexible material which allows free and natural skin movement
  • Removable in one piece with the ostomy pouch to facilitate an easy and painless pouch change
  • Easily adjustable to ensure versatile support
  • Allows skin to breath in order to prevent sweating - one of the most common causes of adhesion loss

How Do These Flange Extenders Work?

These flange extenders offer extra adhesion to prevent the ostomy bag's base plate from lifting away from the skin. The breathable material of the extenders allows the skin to breath as normal, preventing sweat which is one of the primary causes of leaking.

How Do the Silex Silicone Extenders Differ from Other Ostomy Adhesives?

Unlike conventional hydrocolloid seals, the silicone of these flange extenders 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.

Unlike many conventional ostomy adhesives, the natural flexibility of this material also allows Silex Silicone Flange Extenders to move naturally with the body. This gives ostomates support and security without limiting their movement or causing discomfort.

Are These Flange Extenders Clean and Hygienic?

Yes, the Silex Silicone Flange Extenders are designed to make any ostomy routine as clean, hygienic and discreet as is possible.

Will These Flange Extenders Prevent the Ostomy Pouch From Leaking?

These extenders 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 they prevent the seal from degrading and leaking. Their flexible material should also maintain a firm hold in spite of movement or creasing.

Can These Flange Extenders be Used at Night?

The Silex Silicone Flange Extenders are designed to last the same amount of time as the ostomy pouch, keeping its seal firm even at the most vulnerable times, such as during sleep. These extenders should give ostomates the security to sleep through the night without feeling anxiety about their pouch leaking.

Are These Flange Extenders Waterproof?

Yes, the silicone material of this extender is waterproof and is suitable for use when swimming and bathing. However, it is important to ensure that the skin and base plate material are dry when applying the flange extender to guarantee a firm attachment.

How are the Silex Silicone Flange Extenders Applied?

  1. Remove the tabs marked 1
  2. Position the flange extender on the area of the ostomy pouch which needs additional adhesion
  3. Smooth the extender down so it seals properly
  4. Remove the external tabs marked 2
  5. If the extender needs adjusting, it can be gently lifted at one end and repositioned

How are the Extender and Bag Removed?

There is no need to change a standard routine when removing the flange extender and ostomy bag. When the ostomy pouch is removed the extender will come off in one piece, leaving no residue. This allows for a quick, easy and clean pouch change.

Do these Flange Extenders Absorb Moisture?

The silicone of these extenders does not absorb moisture or body waste from the ostomy bag. This has two key consequences: the first is that each extender remains hygienic until the pouch needs to be removed. This reduces seepage to ensure comfort and discretion.

The second is that the extender 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.
