Mouldable Glue – Sugru

Sugru is a tool that helps to strengthen the reuse step of the European waste hierarchy.  The five steps are “Prevention, Reuse, Recycle, Recovery and Disposal” respectively.  

Often times it is extremely difficult to repair items for reuse. Sugru is a mouldable, flexible, temperature resistant, waterproof and durable glue.  It is able to harden in 24 hours to the shape that you require. Therefore Sugru has the potential to give products a second life before they become waste.
