  • Calcium Stearate Coated

Glikolak surgical veterinary suture is flexible, synthetic, absorbable, sterile surgical suture consisting of copolymer synthesised from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide (gylocolide and lactide acid derivatives). Empirical formula of copolymer is (C2H2O2)m(C3H4O2)n. Multifilament suture is formed by combining fibres by braiding. Coating material of Glikolak suture is prepared with equal amount of calcium stearate (C36H70O4Ca) and 30% glycolide and 70% lactide (for (C2H2O2)m(C3Hsub>4O2)n formula; m:n=3:7). Since Glikolak suture is used on living organisms, it is absorbable and cause no irritation. Copolymer and coating material calcium stearate are non-antigenic, non-pyrogenic and causes mild tissue reaction during absorption. Glikolak surgical veterinary suture is manufactured with or without stainless steel needle, with different lengths, and between USP 80 and 2 (metric: 0.4-5). Glikolak suture is dyed with violet (D&C Violet No.2 C.I. #60725, FDA Part 74.3602 / Solvent Violet 13) colour to increase visibility. Also, there are colourless (natural, beige) options.
