Sugru is a flexible air curing silicone adhesive elastic putty which has just been launched.  Priced at £7 for 10 sachets of quite small size it is expensive but may be useful where a soft moulded plastic is needed – for a custom designed handle coating for instance.  It looks as if it could also be useful for soft feet for items. 

Unlike most two part mouldable silicone epoxies which are commonly used for mould making this one claims to have some adhesive properties.  Once a sachet has been opened it starts to air cure and must all be used within 20-30 mins.  Shelf life is 12 months.  If anyone has used this stuff could they please report back using the “Contact Remap” link under “Fixed pages” on the right.
