Mould it round cable outers for frame rub protection perhaps, There’s a bikey application that might work. What’s the firm/rubbery ratio like when it’s cured?
See? I just wasn’t thinking hard enough. It feels slightly firmer than a firm pencil eraser when it’s cured.
That sounds a bit like self-amalgamating tape. SA tape, however, only sticks to itself. It’s used quite a bit in sailing, as it provides a fairly durable, flexible rubber coating.
You could use it to add ribs to your frame and increase the stiffness
Has Tom’s dashboard been cleaned with something with silicone in? That usually stops things sticking..
Is that an out of focus James Blunt holding the cheese grater?
If you send me a packet, I’ll do a road test for you!
Waterproof case for DX battery?
Have so far used it succesfully to waterproof the connection on my Luu light and to make new nose bridge support things on my riding glasses as I lost the old ones.
The website says it only lasts for six months in an unhardend state ( make your own smutty joke ), so maybe not so great to keep around for that just in case repair. Love the idea thouugh. One of the other MTB mags fashioned shaped brake lever grips with it.
On my second packet – use it to stop frame rub and make grips fit my hands like, um, gloves.
Also made part of a chain device – works well.
Doesn’t last 6 months in storage though.
It stuck the cover back onto the top of my road-bike brakes.
But failed to stick my wooden kitchen stools back together, or the exhaust pipe back on my son’s toy tractor, or the sole of my slippers back to the rest of the slippers. 1 out of 4 success rate so far…
Bugger – I bought some of this – used it, then forgot about it – waiting for something that needed fixing! That was 6 months ago – does that mean I’m left with a load of useless putty now?
Hi spokebloke and flowmtbguy, if sugru is stored below 21ºC it will last for 6 months.
Can you tell me the codes on the back of the sachets and I can let you know how much time you should have left to use your sugru
How about some kind of light mount? Helmet or bars.
chainsuck protection on my carbon frame maybe? How tough is it when cured?
