Owing to its atmospheric gases and UV resistant attributes, this Orlon is used by surgeons during ophthalmic and neurological operations. It is also known for incredible tensile strength and minimum reaction towards tissues. Provided orlon is perfectly manufactured using quality checked aliphatic polymers and advanced techniques with the help of skilled professionals. We offer this Orlon to the clients at extremely marginal rates.

ORLON (Nylon) Suture is non absorbable, sterile surgical monofilament suture composed of the long-chain aliphatic polymers Nylon 6 and Nylon 6, 6. This Suture is dyed black / blue or green to enhance visibility in tissue It is mostly used in ophthalmic and neurological procedures.
