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!
Reinforce a Kindle's case prevent pressure damage
I have an undercover Kindle case that cleverly disguises my Kindle as a hardback book. However, by early 2011 I'd loved the case enough that it was caving in on the Kindle… and cracked the plastic just under the screen. Eek! Rather than tossing the case, I strengthened the supports around the cavity using black sugru, building it up so the front cover didn't rest directly on the tablet. I cleverly set it up so it helped keep the Kindle in the case as well (so when I drop the case, the Kindle doesn't pop out and crash onto the ground). Rachel, Georgia.
