King StarLite® XL is an economical, cellular (closed cell), utility sheet made from select high-grade King StarBoard® recycled high-density polyethylene. The polymer is up to 35% lighter than the original King StarBoard®. It is the product of a proprietary process called K-Stran™, the most advanced manufacturing process for superior flatness and consistency. King StarLite® XL has a matte finish on both sides of the sheet. It is environmentally stabilized to withstand the harshest outdoor conditions. King StarLite® XL will not rust, delaminate or rot when exposed to UV, humidity or water. It is ideal for a variety of marine applications from boat components, to upholstery substrate and other behind-the-scenes applications where edges aren’t visible. The polymer sheet never needs painting or refinishing, works like wood, and is easy to fabricate with common woodworking tools and techniques.
King StarLite XL is upgradable to King MicroShield® with an advanced antimicrobial technology for protecting the product surface against stain and odor causing bacteria, algae and fungi.*
