Sugru Original Formula is the world’s first moldable glue that sets strong by turning into silicone rubber. It's specifically designed to bond permanently to almost anything including ceramics, metal, glass, wood, plaster, stone, most plastics, some fabrics and even flexible materials. It’s easy to use. Mold it like play-dough into any shape or space you want to fill. You have 30 minutes to fix, bond, make, seal, mount, hang and customize – enough time to reposition and make it perfect. In 24 hours, it cures into a strong and durable, flexible silicone rubber that stays stuck.
From the Manufacturer
Sugru is the world’s first mouldable glue that turns into rubber. With its ‘6-in-1’ formula, it is perfect for any of your project: it can fix, bond, cushion, replace, create and seal.
Stick it, shape it, it turns into rubber. It’s that easy! Its unique formulation ensures that it will adhere strongly and securely across many surfaces and environments, from the freezer to a steamy shower and from the home to the great outdoors.
Sugru sticks permanently to lots of stuff like ceramics, glass, metal, wood, and most plastics and fabrics. That's exciting because it makes it very versatile, but you can also use Sugru to bond unusual combinations of materials together.
It's time to build, seal, fix, create, and stick things together. Mould Sugru with your hands and shape it the way you need - you have 30 minutes to get the job done.
Give it 24 hours : Sugru turns into a durable, flexible silicone rubber that stays stuck (unless you remove it). Allow longer for pieces that are more than 3-5mm thick. Top tip: to speed up cure time place your project somewhere warm.
Sugru will help with everything, from fixing a sink or a broken cable to improve a paragliding or deep sea diving equipment. Join the Sugru community of doers!
Describe your product in 3 words.
I can do it in two! Mouldable glue.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Everything started when I was studying product design at the Royal College of Art when I realised that I didn't really want to design new stuff - we all have enough. What about all the stuff we already have? There’s so much untapped creativity in the world, everyone has ideas for how things can work better. It's not only designers and manufacturers that know how to improve products, sometimes it’s the users of things who know best! I thought if there was an easy and fun way to change and improve things, then people could find that really useful. It’s turned out to be even more true than I thought!
What makes your product special?
Sugru is designed to make fixing and making easy for anyone. It feels like playdough straight out of the pack, so you can mould it into any shape. Then, it bonds to almost any other material and just by exposing it to air, it turns into a strong durable rubber. So it’s perfect for fixing and hacking everything from gadgets to kitchen appliances to toys. People love that it’s so durable and stays strong and securely bonded anywhere from the freezer to a steamy hot shower, from the home to the great outdoors.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Its versatility means Sugru can be used for a huge range of practical, creative and savvy things... 1. To fix that thing - from fraying cables to broken toys, using Sugru will mean you don't have to buy replacements 2. Improvement and personalisation - adding to the grips or handles of existing products is a popular one (eg. a kitchen knife), as well as the endless childproofing solutions 3. Creating something new - whether it’s mimicking an existing product (like Sugru hooks), or a completely unique craft project or prototype, we've seen countless ingenious Sugru hacks for everyday use

The BAD: once you open a packet, it's use it or lose it. For most applications, this is just fine -- they give you ball of the stuff about the size of half a man's thumb ... but if you are looking to use it for something small (e.g. I've seen people suggest using Sugru to refill numbering on appliance knobs that have worn clear), then you're frantically looking for other places to apply this stuff before the whole ball cures and you have to throw it away.
The VERDICT: this is nifty stuff and definitely does what it promises -- if you smush it around a wobbly plastic part, it will become a solid rubber boot to support that part. When you look to use a packet, either prepare to toss the extra, or line up all your jobs at once and do them in the 30+ minutes you have - not difficult.
HELPFUL SUGGESTION: if you're repairing something visible, get a razor blade or other flat piece of metal to help shape the putty (and maybe a spoon for curving). Otherwise, your fix will look like a blob of colored silly putty, complete with thumb prints.
I wrapped Sugru around the original band and gave it 24 hours to cure. It worked well, and I haven't had any problems with it since then. Even though the band is still broken, the Sugru attached to it and holds the band in place over the strap.
I would recommend Sugru for many different kinds of repairs, but it's not perfect. Here is my opinion on Sugru's strengths and weaknesses.
* Easy to work with
* Strong and long lasting
* Lots of applications
* Comes in various colors
* Short shelf-life. Depending on how you store it, Sugru will be usable for around 6 months sealed in its package. This makes it difficult to buy the right amount of Sugru for your application. Since repairing my watch, I searched for other things to repair. While I found a few others, I don't know if I will end up using all of it, which means it will go to waste.
* Can't save leftover Sugru. Once you open a package, you have to use all the Sugru.
* Expensive. This is especially true if you end up wasting some of the Sugru for lack of projects.
* Stiffer than you might think. Many of the suggested uses imply that you can add Sugru to handles and knobs to provide cushioning. However, cured Sugru is rather hard and has little give. That makes is good for some situations (repair a watch band), but not so great for others (cushion the inside of a scissor handle).
* Heavier than you might think. Sugru is fairly dense so it adds noticeable weight to repairs. I particularly noticed this when I used it to seal the wires of a set of earphones I fixed (re-soldered the wires).
* Not sticky or "grippy". I applied some leftover Sugru to the bottom of a USB hub thinking it would help keep the hub from slipping, but it had little effect.
So far, I've used Sugru to:
* Repair a watch band (effective use of Sugru).
* "Cushion" the inside handle of a pair of scissors (did not provide cushioning).
* Provide cushioning under a glass tabletop (worked very well)
* Seal wires of a repaired set of earphones (effective seal, but added considerable weight and stiffness)
* Keep an old iPhone USB plug from breaking any further (worked well)
* Add rubber feet to a USB hub to prevent slipping (did not provide noticeable grip)
First, the positive: I got it mostly as an alternative to electrical tape for repairing charging cables on which my cats have shredded the coating. This has happened to several, so it was easy to use up a whole pack- this is good, since once opened, the stuff cures whether or not you've used it. It was easy to use, and has made a somewhat flexible cover replacing the shredded plastic. It was easy to use. I kneaded it a bit before applying, because it seemed a bit granular right out of the package, but smoothed up well. As you can see in the attached photo, I did not make extra efforts to make the repair look slick and pro!
So far I am very happy with it. It was FAR easier to get a good covering for the wires with it than with electrical tape. I did have enough jobs to use the whole packet, so none of it went to waste.
Potential negatives: the expiration date is Dec 2017, for the stuff I got April 2 2017. I still have 7 packages to use! One review suggest storing it in the refrigerator, and I will do that.
Also, several people have had their repairs crack and break promptly. I will edit this review if any of mine do! I suspect that they did not knead the putty before using it, which was important to get a uniform smooth texture.
So far, though, I am very happy with it! I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 mostly because the shelf life is short- I got 8 months, but some people have reported 3, and there’s no way to tell until you buy it.
