Starlite XL is a lightweight marine substrate closed cell utility sheet made from select high-grade King Starboard recycled polymer material. It is ideal for boat parts, as an upholstery substrate and in other behind-the-scenes applications where edges are not visible. Gray in color.
Starlite is approximately 35 percent lighter in weight than classic King StarBoard plastic and offers the same quality textured surface on both sides.

why is it recommended not to expose the edge?
I suspect it is due to appearance. The layers of what looks like plywood is visible along the edges. So the edges do not look like that smooth, slick and polished look of the sides. The stuff is strong, water proof, and works well in the wheel well (back splash) on my boat trailer.
How much does the 1/2 inch starlite weigh?
It depends on how much you buy? Seriously though, it is comparable to 3/4 inch plywood.
Can I get a piece 12x18?
We only have the sizes listed.
I have 3/4 in plywood flooring in my boat now what thickness starboard should I use to replace it?
You could use the 1/2" to replace the plywood. This product is not recommended as flooring as it gets very slippery when wet. Also adhesives do not adhere to this material.
I have made port frames, a gauge panel and access hatches all from King Starboard. This material can be cut or molded like wood and will last forever. If using for benches I would add some non-skid material to keep from sliding around.
