Composition Colour Range Characteristic 
Braided and coated suture made of Polyglycolic acid (PGA) Violet and Natural 9/0 to 6 USP Absorbable, multifilament, coated, synthetic, high tensile strength, reduced capillary effect, mid-term healing

Chirlac braided is a mid-term absorbable, synthetic, multifilament suture material of extremely high tensile strength made of the homopolymer of hydroacetic acid (glycolic acid).

The thread has a homogeneous structure and surface, which gives it low frictional properties and holds firmly without slipping when knotted.

Chirlac braided is coated with an absorbable sub - stance, which reduces the capillary effect, provides excellent holding properties and diminishes the tendency to cut into the flesh, while ensuring that the knots hold firmly.

Chirlac braided is degraded in the body by a simple hydrolytic process. The degraded products are metabolised completely in the body. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass.
