Centidene Monofilament

Monofilament Polyvinylidene (PVDF)



CENTIDENETM, PVDF sutures is smooth, supple, free from frays & kinks, has a higher tensile strength, requires less knots to achive knot security and this technically advanced suture material is easier to straighten when removed from pack.

Superior Penetration

  • Laser - drilling allows use of a unique, strong stainless steel alloy with high-performance capabilities.
  • Fine taper ratio for excellent penetration.
  • Up to 21% better penetration on the 10th pass than any competitor.

Superior Ductile Strength

  • Laser-drilling allows use of a unique, strong stainless steel alloy for increased ductile strength.
  • Up to 350% more resistant to breakage during bending.
  • Less likely to break when reshaping.
