True North Arrows LLC has introduced the industries best ECO-FRIENDLY water borne Cresting paints, Crown dip and Clear gloss arrow finish available. Low to no odor.Products stays flexible and do not crack or check. Arrows can be put thru a ''speed dipper'' or ''free dip'' method. All thinning and clean up is with water. Products are great for wood arrow shafts, carbon or aluminum. 8 Crown dip colors available - Black, White, Red, Yellow, Orange, Purple, Feather Green, Feather Blue, 15 Cresting colors available- Tan, Grey, Black, White, Red, Yellow, Orange, Dark Green, Feather Green, Dark Blue, Feather Blue ,Light Pink, Purple, Metallic Silver, Metallic Gold, Clear Gloss Arrow Finish is gloss to seal shaft completely.

The TRUE NORTH ARROWS PRIVATE LABELED cresting paints and clear coatings were also personally tested, as I have worked in the paint industry for over 30 years. These are the best/most durable water-based products I have found, simply stated.I have left arrows in testing out in the weather for 30 days and not had any lifting of clear finish or paints , all feather adhesives are still intact and arrow is still shoot-able.
True North Arrows LLC was formed to make traditional wood arrows at a reasonable price. These arrows are made to shoot, hunt and harvest game. I purchase one dozen Port Orford Cedar shafts matched in grain weight & spine weight. That allows us to create a quality set of matched arrows from the start. The shafts are then stained/clear dipped / crown dipped and or crested and then 3 more coats of clear dip is applied, when shooting or hunting you get to look at a quality nice looking arrow. Other items offered by True North Arrows, LLC are quality items that we can all use in our hunting adventures. Each item has been personally used and tested. If it works, I will sell it; If not, you will not see it on our website.

WHAT IF YOU WERE TOLD THERE IS A SAFER, FASTER AND I BELIEVE A BETTER WAY TO FINISH WOOD, CARBON AND ALUMINUM ARROWS?

SPAR VARNISH, GASKET LACQUER, POLYURETHANE, SANDING SEALER, SPARURATHANE, WE HAVE TRIED THEM ALL FOR ARROW FINISHES. SOME ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS. SOME WILL BE BRITTLE AND CRACK, BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT THE ‘’OIL’’ BASE SOLVENT PRODUCTS WE HAVE USED IN THE PAST HAVE BEEN REPLACED BY ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY FINISHES.

YES THE GREEN MOVEMENT IS HERE IN ARROW MAKING PRODUCTS AND FINISHES.

TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC IS PRODUCING THE INDUSTRIES FINEST ECO-FRIENDLY FINISHES THAT WORK ON WOOD, CARBON AND ALUMINUM SHAFTS.

NO MORE SMELLING UP THE BASEMENT WITH THE OIL BASE STAIN, LACQUER CRESTING PAINTS AND GASKET LACQUER GLOSS CLEAR COATING. NO MORE ’’YOU’RE STINKING UP THE WHOLE HOUSE’’. LETS BE REALISTIC HERE, WE ALL KNOW THAT THE SOLVENT BASED PRODUCTS SHOULD NOT BE BREATHED IN FOR OUR GENERAL HEALTH AND MOST OF US WHO MAKE UP OUR ARROWS IN A SMALL CONFINED SPACE, SOME OF US HAVE INSTALLED EXHAUST FANS TO HELP WITH THE ODOR PROBLEM, BUT NOW WE CAN USE PRODUCTS THAT HAVE NO OR LOW ODORS.

TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC. IS PRODUCING A LOW OR NO V.O.C. (VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND) ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE 100% WATER BORNE ACRYLIC GLOSS ENAMELS TECHNOLOGY PROVEN IN THE INDUSTRY.

AFTER BEING FED UP WITH THE PRODUCTS OF YESTER YEAR ALONG WITH THE ODORS AND PRODUCT FAILURES, HE (JC) DEVELOPED THE INDUSTRIES BEST ECO FRIENDLY FINISHES.

TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC WAS BORN AFTER A SIMPLE LOST ARROW WAS FOUND AFTER A MONTH IN THE RAINY SPRING WEATHER OF MAY 2010. THE PRODUCTS HE (JC) SWITCHES OVER TO FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL USE THE PREVIOUS YEAR. WHAT WAS NOTICED WAS THE ARROW SHAFT WAS STILL STRAIGHT, NO CRACKING, CHECKING, IT FLEW TRUE..... THE IDEA TO BRING THESE PRODUCTS TO THE MARKET WAS BORN.

I (JC) HAVE PERSONALLY FOUND THESE PRODUCTS TO BE MORE COST EFFECTIVE THAN SOLVENT PRODUCTS. NOW I KNOW SOME OF YOU HAVE TRIED ACRYLIC PRODUCTS IN THE PAST THAT HAVE NOT WORKED TO THIER SASTIFACTION AND I WAS ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE... BUT I HAVE THE TICKET… TRUE NORTH ARROWS 100% WATERBORNE GLOSS CRESTING PAINTS, CROWN DIP PAINTS AND CLEAR SATIN OR GLOSS.

FIRST AND FORE MOST THESE PRODUCTS ARE NOT YOUR EVERYDAY '' DO IT YOUR SELFER PRODUCTS YOU GET AT THE LOCAL HOME BUILDING CENTERS OR HARDWARE STORES''

THESE ARE PROFESSIONAL INDUSTRIAL GRADE, EXTERIOR GRADE, AND COMMERCIAL GRADE THAT MAY BE THE MOST EXPENSIVE PRODUCTS IN THE PAINT INDUSTRY. PRODUCTS ARE RATED 1 THRU 10 WITH THE AVERAGE PRODUCT AT A 5 OR 6... MAYBE A 7 RATING... TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC PRODUCTS ARE RATED AT A 10. THEY ARE CAREFULLY FORMULATED TO WORK WITH EACH OTHER AND NOT TO BE MIXED WITH OTHER BRANDS EVEN IN THE WATER BORNE RELM.

HERE IS THE PROCESS:

STARTING WITH THE STAINING PORTION OF ARROWS YOU CAN USE TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC ‘’WATER BASED’’ STAIN, A LOW TO NO ODOR STAIN. THE STAINS SHOW A RICH DEEP LOOK ON THE PORT ORFORD CEDER, PINE AND HICKORY AND THEY ARE SUPER FAST DRYING. AVAILABLE IN 8 STAIN COLORS; DARK WALNUT, MAHOGANY, LIGHT WALNUT, YELLOW, RED, BLUE GREEN, WHITE AND GRAY. DRIES IN 4 TO 6 HOURS AND READY FOR CLEAR SEALER AFTER WIPING WITH A 3-M SCOTCH BRITE TYPE PAD TO REMOVE ANY RAISED GRAIN.

AS FOR A SEALER CLEAR COAT ON THE STAINED SHAFTS. TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CLEAR GLOSS OR SATIN. DIP THE SHAFTS INTO THE DIP TUBE USING TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC 100% WATER BORNE CLEAR GLOSS OR SATIN FINISH. TO SEAL THE STAINED SHAFT COMPLETELY BEFORE CRESTING OR CROWN DIPPING.THIS AVOIDS ANY BLEEDING OF COLORS. THESE PRODUCTS IN GLOSS FINISHES ARE PROFESSIONAL INDUSTRIAL COMMERCIAL EXTERIOR GRADE. THESE FINISHES ARE SUPER TOUGH, DO NOT CRACK, YELLOW AND CAN STAND UP TO A LOT OF ABUSE, THIS CLEAR SYSTEM WAS DESIGNED TO USE WITH THE GASKET SYSTEM AND MAY BE USED WITH THE FREE DIP METHOD.2 COATS OF CLEAR USING THE FREE DIP METHOD AND 2 OR 3 COATS AFTER CRESTING AND CROWN DIPPING FOR ADDED PROTECTION. YOU MAY RE COAT AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WISH. I (JC) PERSONALLY DIP PAST THE NOCK FOR A COMPLETE SEAL.

TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC. CLEAR COAT WAS DESIGNED TO USE WITH THE SPEED DIPPER GASKET SYSTEM OR THE ''FREE DIP'' METHOD.

AS SOON AS YOU DIP A DOZEN SHAFTS THRU A SPEED DIPPER GASKET SYSTEM THEN YOU CAN RE-DIP THE SHAFTS FOR A SECOND COAT, YES IT DRIES THAT FAST THRU THE SYSTEM. TWO OR THREE COATS THRU A SPEED DIPPER IS USUALLY SUFFENT TO SEAL THE SHAFTS. THE FINISH MAY HAVE A WHITE OR MILKY COLOR AND DRY A CRYSTAL CLEAR. HERE IS THE GREAT THING ABOUT THESE ACRYLIC CLEAR FINISHES, THE FINISH WILL STAY FLEXIBLE, WHERE AS LACQUER AND VARNISH FINISHES ARE A HARD AND BRITTLE FINISH, ALSO ANOTHER BENEFIT IS THIS ACRYLIC STAYS CLEAR, IT WILL NOT ‘’YELLOW’’ AS LACQUERS AND POLYS DO.IT IS ALSO FLEXIBLE AND WILL NOT CHECK OR CRACK.

''FREE DIP '' METHOD OF DIPPING SHAFTS AND LETTING RUN OFF INTO A CATCH BASIN LIKE A PLASTIC TUB OR WALL PAPER TRAYS

THE WATER BOURNE CLEARS WILL STAND UP TO MOST SOLVENT THINNERS WITH ONLY M.E.K. (METHYL ETHYL KEYTONE) CUTTING INTO THE FINISH. BUT IT TAKES A LOT TO GET IT TO PULL THE CLEAR FINISH OFF THE ARROW SHAFT.

AS FOR THE CRESTING PAINTS AND CROWN DIPPING TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC 100% WATER BOURNE ACRYLIC CRESTING & CROWN DIPPING PAINTS IN A GLOSS FINISH. THESE COLORS WERE CUSTOM MATCHED TO MATCH UP WITH FEATHERS. TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CROWN DIPPING PAINTS ARE SELF PRIMING ON WOOD SHAFTS. CARBON AND ALUMINUM YOU WILL NEED TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CARBON PREP AND PRIMER LISTED BELOW.

THESE ARE SUPER TOUGH, COVER WELL AND HAVE EXCELLENT ADHESION AS THESE PRODUCTS WERE DESIGNED TO REPLACE THE SOLVENT PRODUCTS OF THE PAST. IT IS RECOMMEND CLEAR COATING OVER ALL CRESTING OR CROWN DIP PAINTS IN THE ARROW FINISHING PROCESS. I LIKE THE ADDED PROTECTION. MORE ON THIS AFTER THE PAINTS ARE DISCUSSED. REMEMBER TO ALWAYS STIR THE PAINTS. DO NOT SHAKE THE PAINTS. IF YOU LIKE TO THIN YOUR CRESTING PAINT JUST ADD A FEW DROPS OF WATER AT A TIME USING AN EYE DROPPER OR A CHILD'S MEDICATION DISPENSER. BY DOING SO YOU WILL LIKE TO GET TO A FLOW AND LEVELING TO YOUR DESIRE. I PERSONALLY USE THE SAME CRESTING BRUSHES THAT I HAVE ALWAYS USED, I JUST CLEAN WITH WATER INSTEAD OF PAINT SOLVENT.

THESE FINISHES COVER WELL; SOME COLORS SUCH AS YELLOW, PINK ARE TRANSLUCENT AND WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL COATS FOR COVERAGE. USUALLY 2 COATS WORK WELL, USUALLY 2 OR 3 COATS OF CROWN DIP PAINT TO COVER A RAW WOOD SHAFT (PAINT IS SELF PRIMING ON WOOD) OR OVER TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CARBON PRIMER.

8 CROWN DIP COLORS AND 23 CRESTING COLORS. 13 GLOSS CRESTING COLORS AND 10 METALLIC AND FLUORESCENT COLORS. ALWAYS CLEAR COAT OVER THE FLUORESCENT COLORS AND METALLICS FOR PROTECTION, THE GLOSS CRESTING PAINTS AND CROWN DIP PAINTS CAN STAND ALONE AS THEY ARE A PROFESSIONAL INDUSTRIAL COMMERCIAL EXTERIOR GRADE,

***PLEASE NOTE*** TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CRESTING PAINTS ARE NOT HOBBY PAINT! THEY ARE THE TOUGHEST ECO-FRIENDLY INDUSTRIAL PAINTS ON THE MARKET TODAY.

ALWAYS STIR THE CROWN DIP PAINTS SO YOU DO NOT GET A LOT OF BUBBLES IN IT AS YOU WILL GET ‘’FISHEYES’’ WHEN THE BUBBLES BREAK.IF YOU GET A LOT OF BUBBLES IN YOUR PAINT YOU CAN ADD A SMALL AMOUNT OF WATER.NOTE THESE CROWN DIP AND CLEAR FINISHES ARE PRE THINNED AND READY TO USE.

REMEMBER TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC. CLEAR FINISH AND CROWN DIP PAINTS ARE PRE THINNED AND READY TO USE THINNING TO YOUR PREFERENCE IS ALWAYS WITH WATER, SO YOU GET A NICE RUN OFF CONSISTENCY FOR CROWN DIPPING. NEVER TRY TO THIN WITH SOLVENTS SUCH AS PAINT THINNERS, ETC. AS IT WILL TURN YOUR PAINT INTO COTTAGE CHEESE.

LET THE CROWN DIP SET OVER NIGHT AND THE CRESTING PAINTS SET AN HOUR TO A FEW HOURS. A QUICK NOTE ON DRY TIME, 100% WATER BOURNE ACRYLIC PAINTS WILL DRY TO TOUCH IN MINUTES TO 1 HOUR ON THE CROWN DIPS, HERE'S THE CLINCHER, ALL ACRYLIC OR WATER BASE PAINT NEEDS TO ‘’CURE’’ FROM THE INSIDE OUT, THAT USUALLY TAKES 2 TO 4 WEEKS DEPENDING ON THE MILL THICKNESSES OF THE PAINTS, (MILL THICKNESS=HOW THICK OF A COAT OF PAINT) LET IT SET OVER NIGHT AND YOU WILL HAVE NO WORRIES. DO NOT TRY TO PUSH THE DRY TIME OF THE PAINTS AND METALLICS AS IT WILL CRACK AND WRINKLE IF IT IS NOT DRIED PROPERLY.

FINAL CLEAR FINISHES, USING TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC. CLEAR GLOSS OR SATIN. THE GLOSSIER YOU WANT YOUR ARROWS TO BE, THE MORE COATS YOU APPLY, IF YOU ‘’FREE’’ DIP YOUR ARROWS AND JUST LET THE EXCESS PRODUCT DRIP OFF YOU WILL HAVE A GLOSSIER FINISH FASTER, BUT YOU WILL HAVE MORE PRODUCT WASTE. JUST ADD WATER TO GET A NICE SMOOTH ‘’RUN OFF’’ THE ARROW SHAFTS. I USE THE SPEED COAT DIPPER CAP SYSTEM TO APPLY AS MANY COATS AS I WANT. IT IS A FAST PROCESS AS THE PRODUCTS DRY QUICKLY. AS SOON AS YOU ARE DONE DIPPING A DOZEN SHAFTS YOU CAN START OVER RE-DIPPING. USING THIS PROCESS YOUR SHAFTS CAN BE AS MUCH SHEEN AS YOU LIKE. IF YOU WANT SHAFTS WITH A SUPER HIGH GLOSS ‘’FREE DIP’’ 3 OR 4 COATS BUT WILL HAVE MORE WASTE. DO NOT TRY AND ‘’RE-CLAIM THE USED RUN OFF PRODUCT AS IT WILL DRY TO FAST AND YOU WILL HAVE LUMPS IN YOUR PAINTS AND FINISHES. YOU CAN ALWAYS STRAIN WITH A NYLON OR PAINT STRAINER IF YOU SEE LUMPS OR DRIED PARTICLES IN YOUR DIP TUBE. .TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC ALSO NOTES THAT IF YOUR STAIN IS NOT DRY AND CURED AT LEAST 4 TO 6 HOURS OR MORE THEN YOU MAY CONTAMINATE YOUR CLEAR FINISH, IT IS ALSO NOTED THAT NO OTHER BRANDS OF WATER STAINS OR SOLVENT/DYE STAINS SHOULD BE USED AS THEIR PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE COMPATIBLE.

**SPECIAL NOTE** TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC. CLEAR GLOSS OR SATIN FINISH HAS BEEN TESTED ON LONGBOWS THAT HE HAS PERSONALLY BUILT. THE PRODUCT IS PRE-THINNED AND THE GLOSS FACTOR WILL DIMINISH SLIGHTLY DUE TO RUNNING THRU SPRAY TIPS. ANY SANDING BETWEEN COATS IS RECOMMENDED WITH WET/DRY PAPER (WET/DRY PAPER MAY BE USED WET AS IN SAME CAR FINISH PROCEDURES).

AS FOR GLUES AND ADHESIVES I FOUND THAT DUCO AND FLETCH TITE PLATINUM WORK FINE, THEY ADHERE TO THESE FINISHES VERY WELL.DO NOT STAIN UNDER THE CROWN DIPS AS SOME SOLVENT ADHESIVES MAY CAUSE THE STAIN TO PULL THRU THE CROWN DIP. ANY SOLVENT ADHESIVE WILL ''BITE'' INTO THE PRODUCT ON THE SURFACE.

IF YOU GET A RESIDUE FROM YOUR TARGETS ON YOUR FINISHED ARROWS IT WILL WIPE OFF USUALLY WITH WATER ON A CLOTH OR A MILD DISH SOAP SOLUTION,

ALSO ADDED THIS YEAR 2013 IS THE TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CARBON PREP A NON-PHOSPHATE, NO RINSE CARBON CLEANER FOR CARBON AND ALUMIN SHAFTS. SIMLPY WIPE ON WITH A CLOTH AND LET DRY,

THEN USE TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CARBON PRIMER. A WHITE ''BONDING'' PRIMER THAT WORKS WONDERS ON PAINTING CARBON AND ALUMINUM SHAFTS TO LOOK LIKE THE REPLICA ARROWS OF THE PAST OR SIMPLY BRIGHT COLORS TO FIND IN THE GRASS OR FLIGHT.

ALONG WITH A LOW TO NO ODOR FLETCHING ADHESIVE THAT APPLIES WHITE AND CURES CLEAR FOR A WATER PROOF SEAL. THE ONLY HONEST DRAW BACK IS THE 15 TO 20 MINUTE CLAMP TIME.

TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC CROWN DIP PAINTS AND CLEAR SATIN OR GLOSS FINISHES MAY BE STORED IN THE BIG OR LITTLE DIPPERS, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO APPLY A PLASTIC SEAL THEN THE FACTORY CAPS, SIMPLY RUN A ONL SHAFT UP AND DOWN TO MIX OR INVERT ONW AND THEN THRU OUT STORAGE,

TRUE NORTH ARROWS LLC RECOMMENDS ONLY USING TRUE NORTH ARROWS COMPARABLE PRODUCTS AS TO KEEP IT SIMPLE AND AVOID ISSUES OF MIXING PRODUCTS, WATER TO WATER PRODUCTS AND DO NOT MIX WITH SOLVENT PRODUCTS.
