Non-absorbable surgical sutures are composed of single or multiple filaments. Those are synthetics or organic fibers that are reduced to a twisted, or braided thread.

Each thread is uniform in its diameter and length, under the requirements of the United States Pharmacopeia (U.S.P.) for each caliber.

Also, these sutures can be coated or not, colorless or dyed naturally, or with FDA approved dyes to increase its visibility.
