Abstract

Panels of fly ash are constructed to have magnetic shielding, to have good acoustical properties, to be nonburning, to not give off toxic gases as a result of heat, and to have high structural strength-to-weight ratio in an application such as tops for work stations, or covers for apparatus in a data processing system.

Panels Formed of Fly Ash

Panels of fly ash are constructed to have magnetic shielding, to have good acoustical properties, to be nonburning, to not give off toxic gases as a result of heat, and to have high structural strength-to-weight ratio in an application such as tops for work stations, or covers for apparatus in a data processing system.

The surface of a fly ash panel can be covered on one side or on both sides with a thin layer of metal to provide electromagnetic shielding and electrostatic discharge. The metal layer on the outer surface of the panel can be covered with a thin layer of a thermal plastic, such as polyurethane, to provide a desirable decorative and functional finish. Similarly, the finish can be enhanced by a layer of glass beads. Sculptured shapes and panels with rounded corners and edges can be similarly constructed.
