Silk Non-Absorbable Sutures

Silk Non-Absorbable Sutures are braided, black dyed, coated surgical sutures. The black silk suture material is coated with wax or silicone which helps to reduce tissue friction and capillarity. The silk is processed in a way that ensures ease of knotting with a high degree of knot security.
