Acme Plastics offers marine board products in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Marine board is a flexible, tough material that is resistant to odors, abrasion, acids, and mildew. It resists scratches, impact, UV light, and moisture, making it ideal for consistent submergence in bodies of water – including oceans.
Marine Board is known under many different monikers, such as Marine Grade HDPE, Sea Board, Star Board, Marine Plywood, and Marine Lumber. Despite having numerous names, all forms of Marine Board are made of specially treated high density polyethylene, or HDPE.
Due to the many beneficial qualities of marine board, it has enjoyed enduring popularity when constructing many products. Marine grade HDPE is commonly used in outdoor cabinetry, boat components, RV components, decks, doors and trim, as well as swimming pool equipment.

Why Is HDPE Good For Boating?
HDPE is great for boating because of its amazing qualities that are suitable for marine applications. HDPE is corrosion, marine growth and high impact resistant, which is perfect for dealing with natural roughness and weathering that comes with the sea. HDPE has a large strength to density ratio of about 0.93 to 0.97 grams. HDPE plastic has easy to machine and mold which makes the engineering process run smoothly. And HDPE is UV resistant, which works well for hot weather boating.
What is Starboard Made of?
Starboard is a brand name of marine grade HDPE, also known as high density polyethylene. This type of HDPE has been environmentally stabilized to sustain harsh outdoor conditions, and is often used as a replacement for wood.
Is Marine Board Waterproof?
