Composition Colour Range Characteristic 
Monofilament suture made of Glycolide and ε−caprolactone Violet and Natural 6/0 to 2 USP Absorbable, monofilament, synthetic, high tensile strength, excellent handling properties, mid-term healing

Monolac monofilament is a mid-term absorbable, synthetic suture made of glycolide and ε-Caprolactone, available in natural colour for the closure of superficial wounds and in violet for all other indications, when a mid-term monofilament is needed.

During absorption the material elicited only a very slight inflammation.

The material is degraded into adipic acid, which is completely metabolised in the body. The process begins with a loss of tensile strength, followed by a loss of mass at a later stage.
