Monofilament suture made of Polyamide 6 Blue and Black 10/0 to 2 USP Non-absorbable, monofilament, synthetic, very smooth, excellent knotting properties, easy to handle, loss of tensile strength after long-term implantation

Silon monofilament is a non-absorbable, synthetic suture made of polyamide, which has a smooth non-porous surface.

The thread is extremely useful for skin sutures and has a high tensile strength in knots, and knots tie down easily. The thread is available in blue and black.

Silon monofilament can cause a slight initial inflammatory tissue reaction.
