POLYESTER

POLYESTER is produced by polycondensation of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid.

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

THREAD DIAMETER:
USP 7-0 to 7 (0.5-9 metric)

COLOUR:
green, white (no dye)

CHEMICAL NAME:
polyethylene terephthalate polyester fibre

The fibres are produced by the dry spinning method. The stretched, slightly twisted fibre bundles are then formed into
a suture by precision-braiding and tempering.
The fibre is hydrophobic, i.e. it does not absorb water.

POLYESTER sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, orthopaedic and neurological procedures.

The material is coloured with a physiologically safe dye.

Properties:

  • high biocompatibility
  • high tensile strength
  • excellent passage through tissue
  • high knot security
