Polypropylene Sutures

box-PB DemeTech's Polyester suture is a non-absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of Poly (ethylene terephthalate). DemeTech uniformly coats its Polyester sutures, providing for an improvement in the physical properties of the suture. High quality materials, combined with precise braiding mechanisms, nearly eliminate the occurrence of post-operative suture fragments in the tissue. Unlike absorbable, and some non absorbable sutures, DemeTech's Polyester is not subject to degradation, or known to lose tensile strength in vivo.

    Characteristics of DemeTech's Polyester Sutures:

    Coated Polyester allows for an easier passage of the braided strands through the tissue allowing for smoother usage and less irritation.

    It provides for minimal breakage, and this eliminates the need to remove irritating suture fragments postoperatively.

    Provides excellent pliability (malleable).

    Excellent handling qualities.

    Smooth tie-down properties.

    Dyed for good visibility in the surgical arena.
