NORTH PORT, Fla., September 17, 2014— King Plastic will present a wide range of marine-grade polymer resistant to saltwater, chemicals, sunshine and corrosion at the IBEX Expo 2014 in Tampa, Florida. These polymer products include the King StarBoard® Family product line.

King StarBoard® is the original marine-grade polymer building sheet. It is environmentally stabilized to withstand the harshest marine conditions. It will not warp, rot, or delaminate when exposed to humidity or water.

King StarBoard AS® is a sure-grip, marine-grade, decking material designed specifically for high-traffic areas. This unique product features a special high-friction surface polymer in a diamond or dot pattern to prevent slipping.
King StarBoard XL® is a 100% virgin polymer, marine-grade cellular material with an excellent surface finish. King StarBoard XL sheets are up to 30% lighter in weight than King StarBoard and are made with the same textured surface and colors for a perfect match.

King StarLite XL® is an economical cellular (closed cell) utility sheet made from select high-grade King StarBoard recycled high-density polyethylene. King StarLite XL is up to 35% lighter in weight than King StarBoard and it offers the same quality textured surface on both sides.

“Our original King StarBoard has proven itself for more than two decades in the most severe marine environments on the finest boats and yachts,” said Jeff King, president of King Plastic Corporation. “We are pleased to celebrate over 25 years of success with this product, as well the success of the King StarBoard family of products as we continue to create new business opportunities for boat and accessory manufacturers everywhere.”

Using King Plastic’s proprietary K-Stran® process, the company is able to achieve industry leading quality tolerances in dimension, density, finish and flatness. Finished products made from King StarBoard sheets are easy to clean, resistant to mild cleaning products, impervious to water, and never need refinishing.
