Andy Stoe's Speed Dip has been formulated to put a protective film on any steel trap. This protective film puts a hard protective coat on the trap to keep it from rusting. Depending on humidity the dip will dry in 2 - 3 days. It is suggested that you do this on days with low humidity and dip the traps 1-2 months in advance if you are using them for land trapping. This will give the gas odor a chance to dissipate before making your trapping sets. For rubber jawed traps it is recommended that you remove the rubber pads before dipping as it softens rubber.
