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 sutures are available in either black or blue, dyed with FDA listed dye(s). This process is usually followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. The DemeTECH Nonabsorbable Nylon Suture with and without needles is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in ophthalmic procedures. Product is intended for long term use over 30 days. This product is not intended to be used on the heart or with the central circulatory and central nervous systems.

    Characteristics of DemeTech's Nylon Sutures:

    Easy passage through tissues due to its low frictional coefficient

    Minimal tissue reactivity

    Excellent elasticity & exceptional for skin closures

    Although not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis may result in gradual loss of tensile strength over time.
