Sugru is the new self-setting rubber for fixing, modifying and making stuff.

Hand formable

Hand formable

Sugru can be formed and shaped by hand for up to 30 minutes once it has been removed from its packaging.

Sticky

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

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.

Through wear and tear, fridge parts including shelves and drawers inevitably break and crack. Sugru can repair these for a simple and effective fix!

Unlike superglue and other glues on the market, Sugru cures to a flexible rubber so doesn't become brittle and snap.

Sugru is also good for fixing your fridge because:

- it is cold proof (resistant to -60 degree celsius)
- sticks really well to the plastics used in the fridge
- strong and durable

Kit list

  • Your broken fridge part :(
  • 1-2 minipacks of Sugru (depending on the size of the fix needed)
  • Soapy water
  • Scissors
  • Tissue Paper/toilet roll

Step 1

We have made a 'How To' tutorial and in the guide below, we quickly recap over the main steps!

Step 2

For all the breaks, make sure the surface is clean and dry - wipe it with that handy roll of tissue paper!

Step 3

For the break on your shelf, place and press a sausage of Sugru onto the edge of the break.

Smooth the surface by rolling your finger over the Sugru and by wiping soapy water over it. It will take a little bit of time to get it looking perfect!

When you have finished, leave the Sugru to cure at room temperature for 24 hours.

(If you choose to let the Sugru cure inside the fridge, leave it alone between 48-60 hours, depending on thickness)

Step 4

For the cracked drawer, roll the Sugru into a sausage twice the length of the crack and spread it over both the front and back of the break.

Press it down on all sides and then using soapy water, give it that great shiny rubber finish.

When you have finished, leave the Sugru to cure at room temperature for 24 hours and your fridge drawer/shelf is good to go!

(If you choose to let the Sugru cure inside the fridge, leave it alone between 48-60 hours, depending on thickness)



Step 5

Push the Sugru deep into the crack of your fridge and then take your time to sculpt the Sugru so that it matches up with the rest of the fridge.

Use your soapy water to give it a nice smooth surface finish and leave it to cure at room temperature for 24 hours.

(If you choose to let the Sugru cure inside the fridge, leave it alone between 48-60 hours, depending on thickness)

Step 6

24-60 hours later and your Sugru has cured and is ready to go! Your fridge now has a great future ahead of it!
