Describe your product in 3 words.
I can do it in two! Moldable glue.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
The idea for Sugru came about whilst I was studying design in London. I quickly realized I wanted to make something that allowed other people to fix and redesign things to work better for them.
What makes your product special?
Sugru’s versatility. It can be used for literally thousands of different jobs: fixing stuff that’s broken, personalizing and improving things to work better, and even making something entirely new.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Nurturing a community of fixers and makers around the world. Since we launched in 2009, Sugru-ers have shared thousands of ideas with us, so I am learning what Sugru can be used for every single day!

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.
