Nylon or Polyamide is a very big family, Polyamide 6.6 and 6 was mainly used in industrial yarn. Chemically speaking, Polyamide 6 is one monomer with 6 carbon atoms. Polyamide 6.6 is made from 2 monomers with 6 carbon atoms each, which results in the designation of 6.6.
Polyamide 6 is the basic type that owns the core characteristics and performance of every member of the nylon family. With good mechanical property that widely used in all industrial. Polyamide 6.6 has better performance with higher melting temperature. Polyamide provides higher abrasion resistance performance than Polyamide 6, but not crystal as it.
While in the application, thread made by Polyamide 6.6 and 6 shows different on the stiffness, elastic, strength and smoothness. Thread made by Polyamide 6.6 is soft and Polyamide 6 is stronger. The thread made by the both two material called Triple 6 and let the thread owns the both advantage of polyamide 6.6 and 6. The unique technique need precision extruding process that brings the thread more strength with softness. As combined material, the surface is very smooth that provide a perfect handling performance for the surgery.
Even it is non-absorb material, but still lose tensile after implant slowly, long term research shows every year decrease about 20% of the tensile strength.
It was supplied in spool as 1000 meters and 500 meters. The ultra-treatment procedures ensure the thread is round, and with very good consistency on the diameter size. All these ensure the crimping rate and save the cost of manufacturer.
Mostly was supplied in Blue color. US FDA already defined the Logwood black color with approval, and we are developing black color nylon to meet the requirement of US FDA.
