HD 108236 is a G-type main-sequence star. Its surface temperature is 5660±61 K. HD 108236 is severely depleted in heavy elements compared to the Sun, with a metallicity Fe/H index of −0.28±0.04 (52% of the Solar System), and is probably older than the Sun at 6.7+4.0
billion years.[3]

According to WISE mission data, the star was suspected to be surrounded by a debris disk, but a reanalysis of the data rejected the debris disk hypothesis by 2014.[4] The reason for the false positive was contamination from a nearby infrared source.[5]
