Default Starboard

I need a backing for some cushins, what's the difference between Starboard and Starboard XL (lightweight)? Can I use the lightweight? It's non structural, just need something to staple to.

Can't answer your question but I have a sheet of 3/4" I'm not going to use. If you need it let me know.

Yes. I used light for my upholstery backing.

Now I see that have starboard, starboard XL and starlite. Just put in an order for some starlite, 30% lighter than starboard. I also need to build cabinets, was going to use starboard but may use a combination of starboard and starboard XL to save weight. Appearently the XL does not have nice edges like starboard.

I'll let you know, might be too thick for what I need.

Where do you get it? Is there a place local in NJ? Best price I could find was in FL for the Starlite.

I think I bought it from a place in PA. They shipped it FedX freight and I had to pick it up at the FedX warehouse.

I buy it from a place in Orlando called Farco Plastics. It's actually not starboard, but another of the same thing called seaboard. It also comes in light. There is a Farco in Clearwater Florida too.

Just bought the first batch for the cushins at MariSafe. I am still going to need a lot more for all the cabinets. Gotta find the glue too.

I'm told there is no glue that holds it well. At Farco, they told me that 3M makes an epoxy that somewhat holds it.
