Non-absorbable monofilament and uncoated suture made of polyamide

The good tissue tolerability has been proven to be particularly favourable for skin closure and in ophthalmology.

Dafilon® is a non-absorbable synthetic monofilament suture made of polymers polyamide 6/6.6 (dyed blue), polyamide 6.6 (dyed black) or polyamide 6 (undyed). Dafilon® blue and Dafilon® undyed are indicated for the closure of superficial wounds and plastic surgery. Dafilon® black is used for microsurgical and ophthalmic purposes.
As with any nylon suture, though not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the suture may result in gradual loss of its tensile strength over time.


  • Flexible, easy to handle and tie
  • Smooth passage through tissue
  • Excellent histocompatibility
  • Good knot tensile strength
  • The knot sits very well
