What age range is Blu-Tack® suitable for?

Blu-Tack® is great for both children and adults, however we advise not giving it to children under the age of three.

What surfaces can Blu-Tack® stick to?

Blu-Tack® can be used on non-porous surfaces such as glass, metal and plastic, as well as painted surfaces and vinyl coated wallpaper.

When will Blu-Tack® stick best?

Surfaces must be clean and dry, and free from grease or loose materials to work best. If a room or surface conditions are too hot (over 70°C), Blu-Tack® will soften and become more difficult to secure items in place.

Blu-Tack® is a non-toxic, non-harmful substance and will not cause any problems if swallowed, only mild discomfort. If any discomfort experienced continues, we recommend seeking medical advice.

Is Blu-Tack® tested on animals or made with any animals ingredients?

Blu-Tack® is not tested on any animals nor does it contain ingredients made from animals nor by products of animals.

How much weight can Blu-Tack® hold?

0.5 grams of Blu-Tack® will hold an approximate 105-gram load, but Blu-Tack® is not designed to hold heavy objects.

Pop it in a tightly closed container in a dry, cool and well-ventilated location.
