sugru :: a material for hacking things better

Sugru is a brand new material developed specifically to “hack things better.” Here are some of its extraordinary properties:

Cures at room temperature
Sugru is like modeling 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. Working time = 30 mins. Cure time = 24hrs (3-5mm deep).

Self-adhesive
Sugru is designed to stick to as many other materials as possible. It forms a strong bond to aluminium, steel, ceramics, glass and other materials including plastics like perspex. Read more on our instructions page.

Loves a bit of heat (or cold)
Sugru is resistant from -60°C to + 180°C. It gets hot and cold but it won’t get softer or harder or melt.

Waterproof
Sugru is silicone, so it’s completely waterproof and durable outdoors. It’s easy to clean with soap and water, oh and It’s fine with sea water too!

Flexible
When sugru cures, it’s flexible rather than rigid. Which means that you can repair things that need to be able to move like textiles, cables, or shoes.

Dishwasher-proof
Once it’s cured, sugru is pretty much like other silicones – durable in the harsh soapy conditions of your washing machine and dishwasher.
