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!
Stop a ribbon bookmark from fraying Add a personal touch
The built-in ribbon bookmarks on my ten-year journal were frayed with just one year of use. I used tape to cover the ends, but that didn't last long either. Finally, I discovered sugru and have a permanent solution. I squished the sugru into the frayed ends for good adhesion and then added more to get the tassel shape. I smoothed the surface with soapy water and then used the edge of a knife to create the texture. For the gold ribbon, I used a 50:50 mix of orange and white. @aardvark, via sugru gurus
