Convex Barriers

The flanges, or the skin barriers, on ostomy pouching systems typically come in flat or convex. Convex Flanges have a degree of protrusion on the sticky side of the barrier, unlike flat flanges that have none. This protrusion slightly alters the shape of the skin surrounding the stoma to provide additional tension, allowing the pouching system to stick more securely. This offers a better seal and improved wear time. Skin Barrier & Ring Accessories can be used with either type of flange.
