Composition – Strands of purified collagen taken from the serosal layer of selected bovines, tanned with chrome salts. Origin from BSE-free classified countries.

Coating – None

Absorption – By 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.
