Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) braided suture that is 15 times stronger than stainless steel on a weighted basis, and at least three times above USP specifications. The suture, available in three different tracer colors, is more resistant than polyester in mechanical strength and abrasion, yields minimal inflammatory reaction and is offered in metered spools or pre-cut pieces. ETO sterilization is recommended; gamma ray may decrease material strength.
