Starboard/Sunboard UV – HDPE
Excellent resistance to UV – Sunlight, excellent for outdoor applications
Sunboard™ and Starboard are our UV-stabilized HDPE manufactured and designed for outdoor and marine applications, offering exceptional performance in direct sunlight. The beauty of this product is that does not crack, stain, peel, rot, swell or absorb water like other materials.
In addition, the color will not fade and will stay vibrant for years to come under direct sunlight and exposure to outdoor weather conditions. It is also mildew resistant and graffiti resistant. In essence, after installations, it requires zero maintenance.
Starboard/Sunboard™ also is easy to work with using standard woodworking tools. As with all Polyethylene materials, it is soft enough to form smooth curves and bends (however, may require heat in thicker gauges). Unlike wood, this material has no grain and it will not splinter which is a plus for woodworking craftsmen.
Ship Captains like this material because of its durability to withstand the harsh UV rays reflected by the ocean. Sunboard™ is used in outdoor furniture, so using this material for tables, stools, or benches would be ideal.
