When sugru cures, it's flexible rather than rigid which means that you can repair things that need to be able to move like textiles, cables, or shoes. It's also electrically insulating - how awesome is that? sugru is strong and durable and is great outdoors. Once cured, it will stand up to anything the weather throws at it, wet or dry, hot or cold, it will survive. It also won't fade in the sun and it's fine with sea water too. As sugru is a silicone rubber, it feels soft to touch when it has cured, but is also grippy. This makes it perfect for handles and grips as it is comfortable but non-slip. sugru is also stable in extreme temperatures - as low as -58°F and as high as +356°C. It gets hot and cold to touch but it won't get softer or harder or melt.
