TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC PAINT DIVISION ARROW FINISHES

THE INDUSTRIES BEST ECO-FRIENDLY FINISH!

SPAR VARNISH, GASKET LACQUER, POLYURETHANE, SANDING SEALER, MOST OF THESE PREVIOUSLY USED PRODUCTS WE HAVE ALL HAD ISSUES WITH AS THEY ARE INTERIOR PRODUCTS FOR HOUSEHOLD PROJECTS. CRACKING, CHECKING, YELLOWING ARE JUST A FEW OF THE ISSUES ALONG WITH USING UNCOMPATIABLE PRODUCTS.


True North Arrows LLC PAINT DIVISION has introduced The Industries Best ECO-FRIENDLY Waterborne Crown dip, Cresting paints, Stains, Clear Gloss or Satin arrow finish available.

Low to no odor and these products that stays flexible and do not crack or check. Pre-thinned and clean up is with water. Products are great for wood arrow shafts, carbon or aluminum.

The Compatible product line is Tougher than any product on the market. Think of Industrial, Commercial, Exterior product line.

These are the best and most durable water-based products I have found simply stated.

TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC PAINT DIVISION offers more colors than anyone in the industry.

AFTER I BECAME FED UP WITH THE PRODUCTS OF WE USED TO USE AND THE MIXING OF UNCOMPATIABLE PRODUCTS, THE ISSUES, THE PRODUCT FAILURES AND ODERS.

TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC PAINT DIVISION WAS BORN AFTER A LOST ARROW WAS FOUND AFTER BEING IN THE RAINY SPRING WEATHER IN MICHIGAN MAY 2010.

THIS ARROW WAS BUILT WITH THE FINISHES I HAD SWITCHED TO THE PREVIOUS YEAR AND IT WAS STRAIGHT WITH NO CHECKING OR CRACKING AND FLEW TRUE.

THE IDEA OF BRINGING THIS SYSTEM TO THE MARKET WAS BORN.

TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC PRODUCT LINE IS TOTALLY ENVIROMENTALLY SAFE AND THE TOUGHEST MOST DURABLE PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET.

THIS PRODUCT LINE IS NOT THE HOME BUILDING CENTER OR HARDWARE INTERIOR PRODUCTS WE HAVE ALL USED IN THE PAST WITH ISSUES.

THIS ENTIRE LINE IS INDUSTRIAL COMMERCIAL EXTERIOR GRADE PRODUCTS.

TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC PAINT DIVISION PRODUCT LINE IS CAREFULLY FORMULATED TO BE COMPATIABLE AND IS NOT TO BE MIXED WITH ANY OTHER BRANDS.

STARTING WITH THE STAINING PROCESS APPLY TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC WATER BASE STAIN ON THE ARROW SHAFT WITH A FOAM BRUSH UP TO YOUR CROWN DIP LINE CONTROLLING HOW MUCH YOU APPLY. YOU CAN BRUSH IT OUT OR WIPE THE SHAFT WITH A PAPER TOWEL OR RAG. I APPLY 2 COATS OF STAIN FOR DEPTH AND USE A 3 M PAD INBETWEEN COATS FOR RAISED WOOD GRAIN. LET DRY 2 TO 4 HOURS OR MORE.

NOTE: THE LONGER THE DRYING TIME, THE BETTER ON ALL APPLIACTIONS.

SEAL THE STAINED PORTION OF THE ARROW WITH 2 COATS OF TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CLEAR SATIN OR GLOSS. USE A 3 M PAD INBETWEEN COATS TO KOCK DOWN THE RAISED WOOD GRAIN.

THE REASON YOU STAIN TO THE CROWN DIP LINE IS BECAUSE SOME ADHESIVES WILL WICK UP THE STAIN THRU THE CROWN DIP WHEN GLUING THE FEATHERS.

I USE THE TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CROWN DIP PAINT OVER THE BARE WOOD SHAFT AS IT IS SELFPRIMING. I APPLY 2 COATS USING 3 M PAD BETWEEN COATS

THEN AFTER DRYING OVER NIGHT I APPLY TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CRESTING PAINT IN DESIRED PATTERN. I ALLOW DRYING TIME AND APPLY MULTIPLE THIN COATS OF CRESTING PAINT.

AFTER LETTING DRY OVERNIGHT I APPLY 1 TO 2 MORE COATS OF TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CLEAR SATIN OR GLOSS FINISH.

LET DRY OVER NIGHT BEFORE APPLYING FEATHERS.

THE LONGER THE DRYING TIME, THE BETTER ON ALL APPLIACTIONS.

TIME IS TO TOUCH IS USUALLY A FEW HOURS. CURE TIME IS USUALLY A FEW WEEKS. THE LONGER THE PAINT IS ON THE ARROWS BEFORE USE THE TOUGHER IT WILL BE. DRYING
