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.
