SUPOLENE, like polyester, is manufactured by polycondensation of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid.
TYPES OF PACKAGING:
• in precut lengths
USP 6-0 to 7 (0.7-9 metric)
green, white (no dye)
polyethylene terephthalate polyester fibre
The fibres are produced by the dry spinning method. The suture is then precisionbraided, dyed, tempered and the surface specially refined by coating the suture.
This surface treatment reduces to a minimum capillarity and the sawing action during passage through the tissue and the knot rundown. Since the single filament of SUPOLENE is hydrophobic, i.e. it does not absorb water, is non-ageing and
therefore suitable for cardiovascular surgery for securing implants and grafts.
The material is coloured with a physiologically safe dye.
- excellent passage through tissue, no sawing action
- very slight tissue reaction
- high tensile strength
- very even and smooth surface characteristics
- low capillarity
