GSP certainly shines in the strength department--much stronger than Dacron
of similar diameter.
For instance, Dacron
is 24 times stiffer than healthy aortic arch tissue.

graft material," Australian and New Zealand Journal of Surgery, vol.
We provide cruising sailors with a range of different cruising products from the latest North Sails warp orientated Dacron
that allows us to build radial Dacron
sails to 3DL taffeta performance cruising sails.
It is still possible to have sails made from Dacron
; there are even polyester fabrics dyed to look like canvas sails, made for classic sailboats that have no need for the latest high-tech products.
The disadvantages of this technique are cusp abrasion to the Dacron
graft, abnormal stress of the cusps during opening and closing due to lack of Valsalva sinuses and systolic elastic expansion of the aortic root (2).
Unlike Rayon and Dacron
, the polyurethane swab does not trap the bacteria in the fibers.
has another important use--it's the material most stent grafts are made of, whether custom made or off-the-shelf.
He went from a Dacron
string to a Phase 1 string and then built a Flemish twist string.
Because cutaneous anthrax was suspected, wound crusts, swabs for bacterial cultures, and Dacron
swabs used for PCR were mailed as quickly as possible to the Belgian national reference laboratory.
Moisten a Dacron
(not cotton) swab with tap water or saline and insert it past the anal-rectal junction as far as it will go.
The kit contains a 15 x 75 mm tube with 3 mL of sterile deionized water and an attached Dacron
swab, and a 15 x 75 mm tube with 5 mLs of D/E Neutralizing Broth.
