Sugru Original Formula Mouldable Glue
Sugru Original Formula Mouldable Glue is the world's first moldable glue that is used for fixing, bonding and DIY works. The glue sets strong by turning into a durable, flexible silicone rubber. This was designed to bond permanently to almost all materials including ceramics, metal, wood, stone, plaster, glass, metal, some fabrics and most products. Sugru feels soft and is malleable like play-dough. All Sugru Original Formula glues contain the following features:
- Sticks permanently to lots of materials like glass, ceramic, wood, metal and plastics
- Once cured, it stays in its shape permanently and will remain bonded, often for years
- A single-use pack can hold up to 4.4 pounds
- Durable - will not become brittle or crack
- Heat and Cold Resistant - works at temperatures up to 356°F and down to -58°F
- Waterproof - can be used for sealing applications indoors and outdoors
- Flexible - the thickness of your fix will determine its ultimate flexibility, a thin layer will deliver maximum flex
- Shock Resistant - excellent dampening properties can deliver vibration resistance and shock protection
- Electrically Insulating - has good thermal and electrical insulation properties (Stick only to electronics rated to below 24 volts)
- Weatherproof - excellent ozone and UV resistance. Only slight fading after years in direct sunlight
Roll the material in your fingers. Press it where you need it, and mould it by hand into any shape. From an ultra-thin patch to a shock-absorbing bumper, you have 30 minutes to shape it, smooth it, and reposition it as required. Leave for 24 hours.

Question & Answers
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
