Hollister Adapt - Slim Ostomy Barrier Ring is 2.3 mm thick, which is half the thickness of a standard Adapt barrier. If you prefer a thinner ostomy ring, this version prevents you from having to flatten or manipulate the material like you may have to do with a standard barrier. It also creates a more streamline profile under your ostomy wafer, making it more discreet. A ring barrier acts like a caulk to fill in uneven skin folds around the stoma. This helps prevent output from going underneath the ostomy wafer, which can irritate skin. This product is made from a latex free elastic material and can be cut or stretched to best fit your body. Each ring is packaged in a plastic clamshell, which allows you to use a portion of the ring and store the rest for later.
