MONOFAST is monofilament, synthetic absorbable suture. It consists of glycolic acid and caprolactone polymer. Thread can be died violet (using dyestuff C. I. Solvent Violet 13). Monofast easily penetrates tissues, has high initial tensile strength. With lapse of time, gradual loss of strength and process of absorption is visible. Absorption of Monofast sutures occurs by means of hydrolysis.
