RxFibresorb is a resorbable or biodegradable thermoplastic which means it is a thermally or melt extruded fiber which will break down in the body. The fiber forming process is passing the molten polymer through a spinneret. The spinneret forms the shape of fiber. The yarn can be further processed (woven, braided or knitted) into a structure for a medical device.

Properties include:
  • Resorbable or biodegradable
  • Biocompatible
  • High strength
  • Low wear resistant
Medical Device Applications:
  • Suture
  • Wound care
  • Augmentation
  • Drug delivery
  • Wide range or resorbtion rates
  • Wide range of denier
  • Wide range of elongation
  • Variety of spin finishes can be applied
  • Each run is custom to meet the desired specifications©
