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!
Make a new camera lens cap Replace a lost one!
I lost my camera lid in a crowd a few months ago. A search on the web to find the same kind of lid to adapt to my camera remained in vain. So when I discovered sugru, I thought I might make a new lid for my camera. I remodelled the camera lid from pieces of plastic cut from a documents holder, so I could mould some sugru directly around the camera lens to allow it to perfectly fit without sticking.
After letting sugru cure for 24 hours, I removed my new camera lid from the lens. I found out that it was a bit too loose and would fall off too easily, so I added a tiny discreet pad of sugru to the bottom of the lens to make a grip to the lid, and that was it eventually. Just for fun, while the lid was curing, I engraved the brand of my camera onto it. Finally, I put a sugru sticker on the side of my camera, to show my pride to be a new sugru guru! Christine, France
