UHMWPE Sutures

ALCATER®  (UHMWPE) Sutures & Tapes


ALCATER® Sutures are synthetic nonabsorbable sterile surgical Sutures which are made of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE).

ALCATER® Sutures provides excellent strength, better abrasion resistance than polyester, better handling and knot security/ strength.


  • Abrasion resistance is higher than polyester.
  • Round-to-flat structure provides an ultra-low profile and maximum strength.
  • Available in many colors: solid black, blue, white, white & blue, white & black, white & blue & black, white & green.
  • Inter-locking core technology is the technology that provides a strong core with all fibre configurations at the centre of the suture. In regards to this technology, the knot acts as a backbone by better tied and carrying the load.
  • Provides excellent flex strength.
  • E-braid structure provides better handling and knot strength.
  • Provides good visibility with triaxial patterns and vibrant colors.



ALCATER® ST is a synthetic non-absorbable, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) suture offered in the strip /tape configuration.


  • Abrasion resistance is higher than polyester.
  • Round-to-flat structure; provides a smooth transition.
  • With its flat surface of the tape structure, it helps to support and distribute the loads.
  • Provides larger surface area fixation with its broad, flat, braided structure compared to traditional suture.
  • Colored warp strands enhance the visibility.
  • Available in many colors: solid black, blue, white, white & blue, blue & black.

ALCATER® UHMWPE suture/tape is used for the closure and/or ligation of soft tissue, including the use of allograft tissue for cardiovascular surgeries and orthopaedic procedures.

The inflammatory reaction of ALCATER® suture/tape in tissue is minimal. Gradually encapsulation takes place with fibrous connective tissue.

ALCATER® suture/tape is sterilized with Ethylene oxide.
ALCATER® suture/tape is available with or without needles in pre-cut lengths.
