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!
Prevent sharp edges Of a solar panel from causing damage
I have a 120w folding solar panel that I take camping to charge a 12v battery to run a fridge, and LED lighting. This is a heavy, expensive piece of equipment that is quite unwieldy to set up and move around. The corners of the aluminium frame are very sharp and needed something done to them to protect my hands and also the canvas bag the panel stores in. Filing might have done it, but with sugru I get a bit of added shock absorbing at each corner as well. I used two packs to complete the job on all four corners. I was most impressed with how well the sugru could be cut with a sharp knife (I waited 18 hours before cutting) So quick and easy. Tom, South Australia
