King Starlite (also called King Starboard XL) is a lighter weight version of King Starboard. The base material is identical, however Starlite is extruded with a blowing agent added that allows the material to hold air. As a result, it is about 30% lighter and considerably cheaper.

The trade-off is that King Starlite has a cellular edge that can collect dirt and is impossible to clean. We do not use it in any applications where an edge is visible. That said, King Starlite is a great alternative for projects where the material will be hidden (substrate, mounting plate, etc.) or when aesthetics are not a priority over price.

Key Features:

  • Great economical material choice for projects where cellular edges are hidden
  • Commonly used on tackle box shells, seat substrates and backing plates
  • Same durability advantages as King Starboard - Won't swell, splinter or delaminate
  • Same durable matte texture as King Starboard

Perfect material for my project
I needed a lid for a storage compartment which I built onto the rear of my Airstream Travel Trailer. I considered aluminum diamond plate, but Starlite won on basis of ease of use, cost, weight and appearance. I used aluminum channel to enclose the edges for reinforcement and appearance. This is a very versatile material. Ordering it cut to size made my work easier and likely a better outcome.

Good deal
Cost a bit more for custom cut, but save more time on installation. Worth it.

Is it only the edges of King Starlite which are cellular, or the entire surface?
Joseph D on Sep 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Joseph, it is only the edges. The two surfaces have the same texture and appearance as regular starboard. Thank you!
Can you mount piano hinges to the edge?
Bruce S on Apr 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Bruce, you can mount hinges to the edge, the only drawback to Starlite vs Starboard is the edges are cellular so they pick up dirt very easily and there really is not good way to keep the edges clean looking.
