Nonabsorbable Nylon Sutures

Item# B796CPM

Available in sizes 6-0. Nylon is a nonabsorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of the long-chain aliphatic polymers nylon type 6 or Nylon type 6/6. Nylon suture is coated with silicone. Comparable to Ethilon®, a registered trademark of Ethicon­®.


  • Length: 18in
  • Dyed: black


Nylon exhibits:

  • Uniform diameter of the suture
  • Maximum flexibility of the strand
  • Excellent and consistent knot security
  • Minimal memory
  • For use with precision point needle NP-1 10.5 mm 3/8 circle


  • Plastic surgery
  • Veterinary surgery


  • Nylon suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological procedures


  • Nylon suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue

Tensile Strength:

  • As with any nylon suture, though not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the suture in vivo may result in gradual loss of tensile strength over time
  • Nylon suture should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required


  • Ethylene oxide
