DYLOC is a monofilament of a thermoplastic polyether-ester elastomer. DYLOC is soft and very manageable. It ties very much like silk as the stretch in the suture allows for the material to hold its knot.
High tensile strength
Excellent tying properties
Excellent elastic properties
NOTE: As DYLOC is a monofilament polyether and has elastic properties, care should be taken when using it as a subcuticular stitch. Do not pull tightly or over stretch as it may recoil when being removed.
