CompositionStrands of purified collagen taken from the serosal layer of selected bovines, tanned with chrome salts. Origin from BSE-free classified countries.
CoatingNone
ColourDark brown
Tissue reactionModerate
AbsorptionBy phagocytosis. The rate of absorption is slowed down by chromizing. Complete mass absorption in approximately 90 days. Approximately 50% of tensile strength remain after 14 days. When used in infected tissues or in tissues with increased levels of proteolytic enzymes (stomach, cervix, vagina) it is more quickly absorbed.
