say hello to Sil2 Breathable Silicone Technology.
skin’s new best friend
For the first time ever, Sil2 Breathable Silicone Technology® offers a revolutionary alternative to traditional hydrocolloids. A world first, its patented silicone blend has been engineered to mimic the skin’s natural ability to manage moisture. This protects the skin and creates a natural environment for it to remain healthy. Unlike hydrocolloids, Sil2 Breathable Silicone Technology® doesn’t retain bodily fluids so it doesn’t break down or damage skin during wear time and upon removal.
Instead, Sil2 Breathable Silicone Technology® allows skin to breathe and prevents breakdown of peristomal skin. Its smart adhesive means that it sticks firmly, reducing the risk of skin-stripping and MARSI on removal. This means increased wear time, reduced cost and, most importantly, the chance for your patient to enjoy a life without compromise.
|CLINICAL NEED||HYDROCOLLOID ADHESIVES||TRIO’S ADVANCED SILICONE TECHNOLOGY|
|Provide complete protection with no gaps and exposed skin||Always has gaps of unprotected skin around the stoma. Does not move in and out with the stoma during peristalsis||Mimics the movement of the stoma and never leaves gaps of unprotected skin|
|Instant Adhesion||Poor instant adhesion due to non-adhesive hydrocolloid fillers used in final composition||Instant adhesion due to low surface energy and high flexibility of silicone polymers|
|Ease of removal and reduction in damage and ‘skin stripping’||Adhesion increases over time due to the adhesive matrix flowing into skin (non – cross-linked polymer)||No significant change in adhesion over time (cross-linked polymer)|
|Hygienic||Absorbs faeces and urine||Non-absorbent but breathable to moisture|
|Clean removal (no residue)||Breaks down in the presence of faeces and urine||Maintains integrity and shape in the presence of faeces and urine allowing for one piece removal –leaves no residue|
