Non-absorbable monofilament and uncoated suture made of polyamide


Dafilon® is a non-absorbable synthetic monofilament suture made of polymers polyamide 6/6.6 (dyed blue), polyamide 6.6 (dyed black) or polyamide 6 (undyed). Dafilon® blue and Dafilon® undyed are indicated for the closure of superficial wounds and plastic surgery. Dafilon® black is used for microsurgical and ophthalmic purposes.
As with any nylon suture, though not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the suture may result
in gradual loss of its tensile strength over time.
