SILK

The raw material in the production of this suture is the cocoon of a silkworm.

TYPES OF PACKAGING:
• needle-thread-combinations
• precut lengths

THREAD DIAMETER:
USP 10-0 to 5 (0.2-7 metric)

COLOUR:
white (without dye), black or blue

CHEMICAL NAME:
silk fibroin

These very fine silk filaments undergo degumming (removing sericin, a viscous binding protein), spinning and precision-braiding. A surface treatment waterproofs the silk filament. This process results in silk without any undesirable wicking, i.e. a non-capillary, hydrophobic suture with a smooth surface.

The black and blue SILK (‘virgin silk’) is coloured with physiologically harmless dyes.

Properties:

  • very supple
  • exceptional knotting properties
  • excellent knot security
  • minimal sawing effect
