SUPRAMID

SUPRAMID is available as a monofilament, nonabsorbable, surgical suture material made from a copolymer of polyamide 6 and polyamide 6.6.

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

THREAD DIAMETER:
USP 7-0 to 2 (0.5-5 metric)

COLOUR:
black and white

CHEMICAL NAME:
Polyamide 6-6.6

In larger diameters, it is supplied as a pseudo-monofilament, non-absorbable, surgical suture made from polyamide 6.6, a polymer of hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid with a polyamide-6 coating, a polymer of ɛ-caprolactam.

Special feature
The peptide structure of  SUPRAMID allows it to degrade gradually after it has remained in the tissue for a while, despite its synthetic origin. This suture is therefore, with few exceptions, only suitable for skin sutures or for tissue that does not require permanent support.

The material is coloured with a physiologically harmless dye.

Properties:

  • above-average softness and suppleness
  • superior handling and knotting properties
  • no capillarity
  • excellent tissue passage
