We all know that super glues let you attach practically any two objects to each other, and that epoxies allow you to seal leaky cracks in your ceiling. Well, what if there were a product that blended the strengths of both of those? That, my friend, is where Sugru comes into play.
Sugru is like a play-doh or silly putty that doubles as an incredibly powerful glue and sealant. When you first remove it from its packaging, Sugru will be malleable and clay-like in its texture and consistency. This is where the fun begins. Thanks to its versatile nature, you can use it to stick posters to walls, mend aging shoes, and all sorts of other clever things (check out the video for some really cool ideas). The product’s usefulness is really only limited by your imagination.
Sugru takes about 24 hours to set, which is both a blessing and a curse. While it means that it won’t dry on you in seconds, potentially ruining a project, it also means that you have to be careful not to disrupt it while it’s in the middle of the setting process. Also, if you use it to place something on a vertical surface, you’ll have to use some other item (like tape or thump tacks) to hold your fixture up while Sugru solidifies.
Despite those possible pitfalls, I’d say that Sugru is definitely a product you should check out. Depending on how creative you are, you could come up with a near-endless amount of things to do with it!
