Have you ever wondered what it would be like to preserve the most precious thing in your life? Like the old coffee mug you got from your grandpa or the first camera your dad gave you on your tenth birthday! We may have entered an age where replacing an item takes minutes instead of days but you have to agree that sometimes “old is the new cool”. The happiness you get from using things you’ve had for years cannot be replaced overnight. Maybe that’s why people in over 160 countries are now using a product like Sugru. Whether you’re fixing cables, repairing kitchen appliances or even redesigning cameras for your kids, this unique mouldable glue will always keep you and your favorite items together. Why change it when you can fix or improve it?
So what is Sugru?
Sugru is the world’s first mouldable glue that looks and feels like play dough but sticks to almost anything and turns into a strong flexible rubber overnight. Invented for people looking to repair and improve stuff, it’s used by everybody from homeowners planning DIY projects through to people making small improvements to gadgets, appliances and even toys.
Created by a young product designer, Sugru is made to stick to as many materials as possible forming a strong bond to aluminium, steel, ceramics, glass, wood and other materials including some plastics and rubbers.
How do I use it?
Handy for any number of small DIY projects, Sugru’s durable cured properties mean it’ll stay strong and securely bonded anywhere from the freezer to a hot shower, from the garden to the great outdoors.
Simply open a pack, stick it and shape it to your ‘soon to be improved’ project and leave for 24 hours. Overnight the Sugru turns into a flexible silicone rubber that stays stuck until you choose to remove it (which can be done easily with a sharp knife).
Sugru’s name derives from the Irish word for ‘play’ so get some Sugru, have some fun and get planning that next project!
Where can I get some?
Sugru is available from sugru.com in 10 different colours, all which can be blended to make any colour you like priced from $12 for a 3 pack.
