The filaments meet the requirements to be used in 100% biodegradable textile structures or hybrid structures where a part of the yarns are bio-degradable and a part not, to give a permanent mechanical support after degradation of the biomaterials.
The degradation time of the filaments depends on;
- Polymer type
- Molecular weight and viscosity
- Processing (°C, draw ratio,…)
- Location of the implant (humidity, cellular activity,…)
