Developed by a team of product designers and material scientists over 6 years, Sugru’s patented technology is unique in its combination of hand-formability, self-adhesion and flexibility when cured. It feels like modelling clay, and it’s very easy to use. Once cured, its durable properties mean it’s comfortable in extreme environments from the dishwasher to the Antarctic Ocean.
IF IT’S MADE OF WOOD, PLASTIC, GLASS, CERAMIC OR FABRIC, SUGRU WILL PROBABLY STICK TO IT
“Sugru has me absurdly excited. Why? Because it is something I have wanted since forever, only I didn’t even know it.”
By hand, Sugru is perfectly safe to touch, you have 30 minutes once open to work the ‘moulding clay’ like product into the desired position, clean your hands afterwards with a dry tissue. After 24 hours it will set into a durable, flexible silicone rubber.
Nearly any condition you could expose it to, Sugru will hold its form from -50°C (-58°F) to 180°C (356°F). Sugru is also fully water, dishwasher and washing machine proof. Its even fine in the ocean.
Sugru has been used to help people trek to the north pole with added grips on ski poles. Sugru has been used by a father to make his camera drop proof so his son can take pictures. Sugru has also been used to reseal a leak in a cooling system where it withstands high pressure and 80°C (176°F) temperatures.
Yes! With a sharp knife carefully cut o the majority of the product
and then with finger nails and a tissue clean the remainder,
returning the non-porous surface to its original condition.
Not yet – Sugru is stable once it has cured, but people can be
allergic to anything! Sugru isn’t certified as food safe – yet! The
vendor is working on making Sugru child friendly however it’s not
certified yet – so for now it shouldn’t be used by children.
