As per our Shipping and Returns Policy, custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-returnable. If you need an over- or undersized item, note it under "Comments" during Checkout. Cut-to-size orders have an acceptable cut tolerance of 1/8" (0.125"), so clarify if the adjustment is to be made on the (+) or (-) side of the saw blade.Please review our full return and shipping policy here.
Measure Twice, Cut Once
Since custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-refundable, be very careful while measuring your dimensions. As each cut is nominal, even the slightest miscalculation could be costly.
How to Use a Measuring Tape
Extend your tape measure several inches to find the 1 and 2 inch markers. In between the inch markers you’ll find 16 equally spaced tick marks.
Measure by counting the increments beyond the nearest inch. As the increments decrease, so does the length of the mark. For example, 1/2" has a bigger mark than 1/4" which has a bigger mark than 1/8". The smallest mark follows at 1/16". Please be aware that some measuring tapes may have even smaller increments.
Features of a Measuring Tape: Sliding End Hook
The sliding end hook is designed for two different types of measurements. An outside measurement (where the hook of the tape hangs over an edge), requires the hook to slide out a bit to account for the thickness of the material. When making an inside measurement (where the hook will push up against a surface), the clip slides in, again, accounting for its thickness. The measuring tape self-adjusts to guarantee an accurate measurement (as far as the tape is concerned).
Sanitizing Acrylic and Polycarbonate Sheet [X]
Acrylic and Polycarbonate Sneeze Guards and like products require special care while cleaning and disinfecting. To maintain the optical clarity of sneeze guards and other acrylic or polycarbonate items, use an acrylic or polycarbonate safe cleaner like Novus Plastic Polish #1, Brillianize Plastic Cleaner, or a mild soap solution.
Please reference the following compatible cleaners when DISINFECTING acrylic and polycarbonate items. The use of commonly available commercial alcohol or ammonia-based disinfectants may cause crazing and damage.
Marine Board HDPE (or High Density Polyethylene) is a lightweight, tough thermoplastic, environmentally stabilized to withstand the most challenging marine environments.
Marine Board HDPE is a superior alternative to wood at a very economical price. It's resistant to salt water, a wide range of chemicals and UV exposure, and unlike other alternatives, Marine Board doesn't splinter, crack, delaminate, rot, swell or absorb water. Even under heavy foot traffic on yacht decks, Marine Board remains virtually maintenance free.
Interstate Plastics also carries King Starboard® HDPE Marine Board, the industry standard for extreme outdoor weather performance. Interstate Plastics provides Marine Board as a more economical version of Starboard®, without sacrificing material specifications or performance, and also offers varying grades of Marine Board plastic including King StarBoard®, King StarBoard® A/S, King StarBoard® XL, and King Starlite® XL Utility.
Wear Resistance With a self-lubricating formula and a high sliding resistance alongside excellent long-term durability and weather resistance, Marine Board HDPE is an ideal marine plastic for a variety of applications including replacing wood, metal or laminate walkways, hatches, walkways, cabinetry and countertops as well as ship and boat components regularly exposed to harsh outdoor environments.
Textured Surface In addition to its resistance to marine and other outdoor conditions, Marine Board has a decorative, textured surface that does not show wear, dirt or scratches.
Salt Water and Moisture Resistance HDPE Marine Board is a lightweight and extremely tough, chemically resistant plastic. It does not absorb water and has a good sliding abrasion resistance in addition to a specialized self-lubrication. Unlike many other marine-based materials, Marine Board is environmentally stabilized to resist salt water, and will not rot or degrade.

Working with interstate plastics was easy and customer service was very helpful.
A+ quality and price. Very easy buying online and we will do so again. Thanks!
Great material. I'm not sure that the photo online shows exactly how it looks, but it's close. We were using starboard and found this to be just as effective for what we needed. I think it may have less UV resistance if I'm not mistaken.
Thank you guys for the fast shipping on my first order with your Company! The material came to my house in fantastic shape, no shipping damage and my home project was started in fine fashion and now you guy's are going to be my number 1 source!!! I would recommend that you might want to run a advertisement in Sea Magazine about your product line because West Marine sells the same marine board for almost double the same price. I hope this info doesn't make you jack up the price of your Marine Board but as a boater this is a Big deal in saving's! Thank you again!
Thank you, this works much better than the original HDPE non textured we were working with. Great anti-slip properties on this, although we are aware there is an AS specific grade. It worked for us!
The king starboard has been a consistently good product from an A+ supplier.
I'm surprised there's not more reviews on this -- it's a great product at a pretty darn good price. Sturdy and strong and cuts like lumber.
Very happy to say Interstate Plastics is offering a good deal at a fair price for King Starboard. Your employees in all departments did there part excellently. Thank you so much for your exceptional service and quality of material!
I've had some difficulties with ordering from Interstate in the past. Lead times, shipping packaging, communication. I still bought from them as the pricing can't be beat. I have to say over the last year I have noticed a number of improvements, not only to the website, but in the way the customer service handles my inquiries. I'll be a customer for a loooong time god willing!
Easy to deal with customer service
Undamaged but slightly concerning shipping pallette.
Great as a replacement for pretty much anything wood on a boat. Cabinets, doors, etc. This is cheaper than the Starboard and I cant really tell the difference. They have other colors too. Will be buying again.
The price must have dropped as we are getting it cheaper than before. Still the same great HDPE!
I have completely switched to using King starboard for my boating applications. It's a lot easier to build boat accessories with because this material is less labor intensive than other materials I was used to. I have not had problems with this product yet. Thanks!
Quick, reliable, and never a damaged sheet.
Have had no problems working with your company, the customer service is quick and friendly.
Ordered this on Monday and got a confirmation email at the end of the day. I even emailed back and asked to order more material the next day and it was no problem. I appreciate the quick & friendly service.
Thanks guys, I just about lost it lokiong for this.
This could not possibly have been more hpleful!
At last! Someone with real exeprtsie gives us the answer. Thanks!
