Sugru is the new self-setting rubber for fixing, modifying and making stuff.
Sugru can be formed and shaped by hand for up to 30 minutes once it has been removed from its packaging.
Sticks to almost anything
Sugru forms a strong bond to metal, ceramics, glass, wood and some plastics like perspex and ABS and rubbers like silicone and butyl rubber.
Air cures at room temperature
Sugru is like modelling clay when you take it from its pack. Once it's exposed to air, it cures to a tough flexible silicone overnight using the moisture in the air.
The sugru gallery - this place belongs to you! This is where we publish the best of the fixes, mods, hacks and improvements sent to us by sugru users every month. Whether you're a pro, or just getting started, share your projects with us — you might even win some free sugru!
Fix a Garmin Edge 800 screen
The glass screen on my Garmin Edge 800 Cycle Computer got damaged. It didn't affect the functionality but it did affect the all-weather integrity of the unit.
I picked the broken bits of screen off using a scalpel and cleaned of any residue with IPA. I then filled the gap with black sugru. This should ensure that water can't get into the unit or behind the screen.
As an aside, I found that IPA is a very good way of getting a very neat finish with sugru.
Apologies for the poor "before" shot, I didn't realise it had come out so bad until after I'd fixed it!
