SUPOLENE

SUPOLENE, like polyester, is manufactured by polycondensation of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid.

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

THREAD DIAMETER:
USP 6-0 to 4 (0.7-6 metric)

COLOUR:
green, white (no dye)

CHEMICAL NAME:
polyethylene terephthalate polyester fibre

Fibres are formed using the dry spinning process. The suture then undergoes precision-braiding, dyeing and tempering and the surface is specially refined by coating. This surface treatment minimises capillarity and any sawing effect during tissue passage and knot rundown. SUPOLENE is hydrophobic, i.e., it does not absorb water.

The material is coloured with a physiologically harmless dye.

Properties:

  • high tear resistance
  • excellent tissue passage, no sawing effect
  • very even and smooth surface properties
  • minimal tissue reaction
