Sugru self setting rubber

Post by sensiblesimon »

Not sure if others have heard of Sugru self-setting rubber but B&Q have just started stocking it for an initial trial for £8 a pack. Bigger packs are available on the Sugru website - Google it to find out more. According to the web-site and other reviews it looks brilliant for fixing, moulding and adding bits onto things. It is waterproof, heatproof and apparently sticks to almost anything. I have a couple of mini-projects earmarked for my first trials including adding drip rings to one-piece paddles, repairing chipped ends of carbon wing blades, a mount for GPS, making new toaster handle, repairing broken roof-rack mount recess cover, split wetsuit boot rubber. Alongside Araldite, Evo-Stick and neoprene glue, I reckon this could become essential fixers kit if it lives up to its impressive hype.

Sugru is wonderful stuff - many uses - but I haven't used it for any kayaking things yet!
