Q-close Nylon


retention in tissue
Material polymer Polyamide 6 and Polyamide 6/6.
Structure Monofilament
Suture type Synthetic, Non-absorbable
Colour Black or Blue
Gauge sizes available U.S.P. 6/0 to 2 (Metric 0.7 to 5.0)
Tensile strength retention Prolonged tensile strength retention.
Mass absorption While it is not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of Q-close Nylon in vivo may result in gradual loss of tensile strength over a period of time.
Sterilisation method Ethylene oxide
Indications Q-close Nylon is indicated for use in soft tissue approximation and or ligation.
