Nylon Sutures

box-NL DemeTech's Nylon suture is a non-absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of the long chain aliphatic polymers Nylon 6 and Nylon 6.6. DemeTech's Nylon Multifilament sutures are available in either black or colorless, dyed with FDA listed dye(s). This process is usually followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. While DemeTech's Nylon Multifilament is not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis may cause a gradual loss of up to 20% in its tensile strength each year. DemeTech's Nylon sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological procedures.

    Characteristics of DemeTech's Nylon Sutures:

    Composed of tightly braided filaments

    Easy passage through tissues due to its low frictional coefficient.

    Minimal tissue reactivity

    Coated to improve handling.

    Excellent elasticity

    Exceptional for skin closures.

    Small USP sizes are designed specifically for microsurgical and ophthalmic procedures.
