Absorbable mesh for temporary wound support

Safil® Mesh is a warp-knitted mesh made of polyglycolic acid. During the wound healing phase the porous structure increases the mechanical load capacity of the supported tissue. Safil® Mesh offers a strong support with a high tensile strength.[4] Due to the absorption of the material after 60 to 90 days the risk of late secondary infections is low. [3]


  • Very elastic and pliable mesh [2]
  • Total absorption after 60 – 90 days [1]
  • Porous mesh structure enhances tissue ingrowth and allows body fluids to pass through [3]
  • Homogeneous elongation in horizontal and vertical direction [2]
  • Strong support with a high tensile strength [4]
  • Reduced foreign body material helps to minimize tissue reaction [3,5]
  • Low risk of late secondary infections due to the degradation of the material [3]


Safil® Mesh is suitable for wound and organ support and to reinforce soft tissues in patients undergoing abdominal wall surgery or other fascial defects that require the addition of an absorbable reinforcing material to obtain the desired surgical result.
