GLYCOLON is a monofilament, synthetic, sterile surgical absorbable suture material consisting of a copolymer of glycolic acid and E-caprolactone. Glycolon is characterized by a rapid decrease in tensile strength. Glycolon is produced in the form of threads of different length and diameter, including a thread-needle combination. GLYCOLON meets the requirements of the European Pharmacopeia for sterile resorbable suture material.

GLYCOLON® is a polymer made of polyglycolic acid and caprolactone. Metabolised to CO2 and H2O by the absorption of water in the tissue, absorption time (50 % loss of tensile strength) is approximately 7-9 days.

GLYCOLON® is a monofilament suture material, whose degradation rate in comparison with PGA is clearly reduced by the specially selected ratio of polyglycolic acid to caprolactone.
The uptake of water from the body results in the tissue-friendly degradation of the suture material by polymer hydrolysis.

The suture has a very smooth surface, which allows long suture techniques with minimal tissue traumatisation and excellent passage through the tissue. The unusually safe and reliable knot security, combined with a high tensile strength, surprises in many ways and immediately convinces the user.
The monofilament suture structure reduces capillary action to a minimum.

Glycolon causes minimal inflammatory reaction with the penetration of the connective tissue. The gradual decrease in the tensile strength and resorption of the Glycolon filament is due to the hydrolysis process. During resorption, the tensile strength first decreases, and then the mass is lost.
Laboratory studies show that the stained Glycolon filament after seven days retains only about 55% of the initial tensile strength, and an uncoloured yarn - about 45%.

The above-mentioned excellent tensile strength requires the use of as little material as possible, while the surface qualities of the suture allows a supple low-resistance passage through the tissues, thus safeguarding the tissue structures as far as possible.


Suture structure Monofilament

Biodegradation approx. 42 days

Colour Undyed and violet
Product range Needle-suture combinations

Suture strength USP 6/0 to 1 USP


Due to the rapid decrease in the tensile strength, Glycolon is not recommended for long-term comparison of tissues under tension, and also in those cases where it is required to retain the edges of the wound for more than seven days. Uncolored filament Glycolon is not recommended for closing the wounds of the abdominal wall or suturing the fascia.
