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.
Welcome to the Sugru gallery — this place belongs to you! This is where we publish the best of the projects and fixes sent to us by Sugru users every month. Whether you're a Sugru guru, or just getting started, share your projects with us — you’ll inspire others what’s possible and you might even win some free Sugru!
Seal your shower fixtures
My taps protrude from the wall by a small amount, which meant I had to use either sealant or grout. I HATE sealant! It's messy and cannot be moulded easily (especially round the taps). So that left grout. However the grout would wear away after a while which meant I was regularly reapplying it – a right pain I can tell you.
Then I saw sugru featured on BBC2's Culture Show. At last I found an answer to my shower tap problem. I ordered the 8-pack and over the weekend tried it out. You'll see from the picture it works well – looks like it was made for the job! And the colours are appropriate in this context too. sugru has exceeded my expectations: easy to use, durable and a water-proof seal.
