QuickDip Procedure

QuickDip Procedure

NOTE: This sheet must accompany bottle at all times.

QuickDip will come to you in three parts, the binder & the fuel mix, and the oxidizer which is separate. The plastic jar contains the binder and the fuel mix. Tthe oxidizer (labeled Oxidizer or OX) is packaged separately. Heres how to mix it up.

Add 3 tablespoons of acetone to the plastic jar containing the powdered binder/fuel mix seal and let sit overnight. The acetone will dissolve the binder, next morning stir well with a wooden Popsicle stick. It will now be a dark viscous liquid about the consistency of syrup. Be sure to use a tablespoon measure that is resistant to acetone. Acetone is available at most Hardware or Home Improvement outlets.

Stir well.

Roll a pencil or dowel rod over the oxidizer packet to remove any lumps, add the oxidizer packet, this is the white powder packet.

Stir well.


Thin to desired consistency with acetone. If the mix gets too thin for your liking, simply stir until desired consistency is reached.

It may be necessary to thin QuickDip as you work.

Avoid Acetone vapor, it is flammable and may cause drowsiness.

Read warnings on Acetone can.

QuickDip will dry out and become a solid over time. You can re-constitute the dip by adding acetone and letting sit overnight. Then mix as described above. The best policy is to keep QuickDip sealed tightly and add about a teaspoon of acetone per month. This will keep it from becoming a solid.

Making Igniters

This is so simple that after you have done it a few times you will be an expert. Just follow the steps described below.

Step 1 (24 Gauge Shooter wire).

Separate the two conductors. Cut one lead about ½ to 5/8” below the other. Do not cut or damage the other lead when doing this.

Step 1 (26 Gauge Shooter wire).

Carefully cut the web between the two conductors with a razor knife or some other thin blade cutting tool. Spread them apart. Cut one lead about 1/2 to 5/8″ below the other.. Do not cut or damage the other lead when doing this

Step 2

Strip about ¼” insulation off each lead and bend the long lead out of the way.

Step 3

Secure one end of the nichrome wire with your thumbnail and wrap the nichrome around the exposed copper about three or four wraps. Now bend the remaining copper over and down, crimping the nichrome in place.

Step 4

Wrap the nichrome barber pole style up the long lead over the insulation. Four wraps are plenty. Crimp as in Step 4 and cut excess nichrome.


Now mix your QuickDip and dip away. The dip can be layered if needed.

Try to keep coating below 1/16″ thick for best results.

The 24 gauge shooter wire and 30 or 36 gauge nichrome is best suited for the Class G and above motors, ground started.  For bigger igniters, fold the coil over before dipping.

The 26 gauge shooter wire and 36 gauge nichrome is best suited for the smaller motors, air starts, or clustering.

Your coil should be about four wraps.

Airstarts, use fewer wraps if you have trouble getting your timer to light them effectively, or use a more powerful battery.  The NiCads are good for this.

Bench Test, be sure.
