PS 4000 Flat Wall Form
FACTS
•
•
•
•
The improved tongue-and-groove design simplifies installation on the job
and minimizes the problems associated with concrete spillage at the top of
the wall.
The 1-1/2” width of each stud provides a strong, secure, and generous
surface area for mechanically securing any type of interior or exterior finish.
The unique design provides strength, fire resistance, and dimensional
stability .
provides you with a superior construction technology that delivers costeffective, high-performance structures that are safer, quieter, comfortable,
energy efficient, and more structurally secure and environmentally
responsible than any building system available on the market today.
FLY ASH
FACTS
•
•
•
•
Electricity is the fuel of the “Information Age” and power plants that burn coal account
for more than half of the electricity produced in the United States. These power plants
also produce residual materials like fly ash (which is captured from the exhaust of the
boiler) and bottom ash (which is heavier and falls to the bottom of the boiler). These
and other “coal combustion products” were originally treated as waste and disposed
of in landfills.
Because fly ash use displaces cement use, it also reduces the need for cement
production – a major energy user and source of “greenhouse gas” emissions.
If all the fly ash generated each year were used in producing concrete, the reduction
of carbon dioxide released because of decreased cement production would be
equivalent to eliminating 25 percent of the world’s vehicles.
Better performance without increase in cost.

String Ribbon combines the best attributes of conventional crystalline silicon
and emerging thin films.
It achieves the reliability, stability, high efficiency, and market acceptance of
crystalline silicon

vertically through a shallow silicon melt, and the molten silicon spans and
freezes between the strings (see diagram).
This advantage in material efficiency means String Ribbon yields over twice
as many solar cells per pound of silicon as conventional methods.
