How can I add stiffness to my project?
To add stiffness to a King StarBoard® step tread or canoe seat, cut grooves under the King 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.

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.
