FILAMIDETM is a non-absorbable synthetic monofilament suture made
of polyamide 6 and polyamide 6.6 (dyed black). FILAMIDETM black is used for microsurgical and ophthalmic purposes.
As with any polyamide suture, though not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the suture may result in gradual loss of its tensile strength over time.
