Description DemeTech’s Nylon suture is a non-absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of the long chain aliphatic polymers Nylon 6 and Nylon 6.6. DemeTech’s Nylon sutures are available in either black or blue, dyed with FDA listed dye(s). DemeTech’s Nylon sutures elicit minimal inflammatory reaction in tissue. This process is usually followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. While DemeTech’s Nylon is not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis may cause a gradual loss of up to 20% in its tensile strength each year. DemeTech’s Nylon sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological procedures.
