i second HDPE
i have it on all my boxes for 2 years now and have never had a problem with it

$45 for 24"X48"X3/8"
i have bought about 8 of those sheets over the years
1/4" thick might work but i would get 3/8" thick to be on the safe side
heres where you can get it
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Sheeting - US Plastic Corporation

theres other stuff out there that works too

1/4" will do fine
HDPE is basically puck board, which you can find at any hockey rink. Most rinks will have a couple broken pieces around the sides of the boards or in the back of the arena. To get that, either ask reallll nice, or just be super sneaky and quick
