DemeTECH PGA Coated Sutures are Polyglycolic Acid suture is a synthetic, absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of 100% glycoside. The chemical formula of DemeTech's PGA is (C2H2O2)n. Clinical trials have shown that after two weeks, approximately 84% of DemeTech's PGA initial strength remained. At four weeks, approximately 23% of DemeTech's PGA linear tensile strength remained.
