STERIMED

Monofilament yarns for textile based implants, like e.g. surgical mesh for hernia repair.
For PET and PP we selected a grade and conducted the necessary bio-medical and physico-chemical testing.
Sterimed contains spin finish to facilitate the further textile processing.
Different spin finishes are available. The type and amount is set in cooperation with the customer.
The spin finish is easily removed in the washing process of the medical device.

BIOMED

Due to the high demand of our customers Luxilon offers now also a range of custom made bio-degradable yarns.

Bio-degradable yarns can be sourced in different ways:

Bio-sourced materials like PLLA: derived from natural source like sougar kane
From non-renewable sources like PCL: derived from petrol but biodegradable
Co-polymerisation of bio-sourced and non-renewable origin: PCLA, a co-polymer of lactide and caprolactone.
Why would you chose bio-degradable materials?

If no long life time of your device is needed
Lower risk or rejection of the body
Avoiding multiple surgical operations
Stimulation of cell growth
Luxilon can produce your monofilaments in PLLA, PCL   or co-polymers of these materials. In Multifilament we offer PLLA. Other bio-materials available on request.
