Does King StarBoard® require support when bearing a load?
The King StarBoard® Family of Marine Grade Polymers are strong, but they are not a structural material. When using these products, they must be supported by a load bearing framework.
Use StarBoard® itself to brace your work.
A reinforcing rib of King StarBoard® can be attached under a spanning application such as a shelf or seat to add the necessary stiffness.
How can I add stiffness to my project?
To add stiffness to a King StarBoard® step tread or canoe seat, cut grooves under the StarBoard® and install a U channel support brace.
Reinforcing pads of King StarBoard® can be attached under a spanning applications such as a swim platform to add the necessary stiffness.
To add stiffness to a StarBoard® hatch or table, install reinforcing ribs on the bottom.
Is there any way to reverse sheet “pinking” or discoloration?
Reversing Sheet “Pinking” or Discoloration
Pinking, yellowing, discoloring, and gas fading are different names that describe color changes in polyethylene. The condition is strictly cosmetic and does not adversely affect the physical properties of the material. To reverse and remove the pinking condition, expose the material to U.V. for approximately 40 minutes. See Pinking Bulletin for details and prevention instructions.
