Out of the pack, sugru feels like play dough, and it's that easy to use too - it can be formed by hand or with simple tools. It bonds to almost anything and turns into a strong, flexible silicone rubber overnight. That makes it perfect for fixes that need to stay flexible and waterproof. Once cured, its durable properties mean it's comfortable in extreme environments from the dishwasher to the ocean to Antarctica.
Sugru is designed to stick to as many other materials as possible including aluminum, steel, ceramics, glass, wood, Perspex and ABS and rubbers like silicone and butyl rubber. Sugru is hand formable and can be moulded and shaped by hand for up to 30 minutes once it has been removed from its air-tight packaging. sugru sticks to almost anything - in fact it was designed to stick to as many other materials as possible. It forms a strong bond to aluminium, steel, ceramics, glass, wood and other materials including some plastics like perspex and ABS and rubbers like silicone and butyl rubber.
Sugru feels like modelling clay when you take it from its pack but once it's exposed to air, it cures to a tough flexible silicone overnight. Working time = 30 mins. Cure time = 24hrs (3-5 mm deep).
What Can I Use Sugru For?
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. It's also electrically insulating so can be used to repair broken wiring insulation etc - how awesome is that?
Sugru is strong and durable and is great outdoors. Once cured, it will stand up to anything the weather throws at it, wet or dry, hot or cold, it will survive. It also won't fade in the sun and it's fine with sea water too.
As sugru is a silicone rubber, it feels soft to touch when it has cured, but is also grippy. This makes it perfect for handles and grips as it is comfortable but non-slip. sugru is also stable in extreme temperatures - as low as -50°C and as high as + 180°C. It gets hot and cold to touch but it won't get softer or harder or melt.
Once it's cured, sugru is pretty much like other silicones - so it's completely waterproof. It's easy to clean with soap and water, and it's durable in the harsh conditions of your washing machine and dishwasher, and even in the sea. sugru can be removed; from non-porous materials by cutting it off with a sharp knife and removing any residue with fingernails and a tissue.
