3 Product Technology FlexCrete is based on: Fly Ash as a Natural Pozzolin Aerated Concrete Approach Fiber Reinforced Composition Chemical Activated Aerated Concrete

4 The FlexCrete Advantage Low Cost Ease of Use Physical Strength and durability (360psi equivalent to concrete) Fire Resistance Energy / Acoustic Efficiency Environmental Sensitivity

5 The FlexCrete Advantage Low Cost of Production Direct Connection with Tribal Agencies Local Distribution in Arizona Fiber Reinforced Composition More Durable than other AAC Products Transportation and Handling Ease of Use Physical Strength and durability (360psi equivalent to concrete) Fire Resistance Energy / Acoustic Efficiency Environmental Sensitivity

6 FlexCrete Operations Currently we have one Production Plant located in Page, Arizona. Plans to open a second plant in Clark County, Nevada. Quality Assurance / Procedures in place. Our Mission Provide Quality Products Excel in Customer Service

14 CUSTOM HOME / GREEN CONSUMER ( SF HOMES): Santa Fe & Albuquerque, NM Scottsdale, AZ Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado and Nevada Markets

15 GREEN CONSUMER Average home = 21 tons of fly ash Otherwise disposed of in landfill. REDUCED impact on Timber Reserves Water Fuel

16 COMMERCIAL MARKET Commercial Applications Thin Un-reinforced Panels Exterior Wall Cladding Renovations EIFS Replacement 4 Mega Block - Party Wall Assembly Fire Walls Sound Walls

17 Two (2) LEED points are offered for projects using recycled content. NFBB would material would qualify for both categories. Materials & Resources Credit 4.1 & Recycled Content: 10% / 20% (Post-Consumer / Pre-Consumer). Navajo FlexCrete products are made with a 60% Fly Ash content. Fly Ash is a by-product of the coal burning process. Navajo Generating Station is the source our Fly Ash and is located three (3) miles from our manufacturing plant.

18 500 Mile Radius Page, AZ N Not to Scale Two (2) LEED points are offered for projects using building materials manufactured within 500 miles of the project area. Materials & Resources Credit 5.1 & Regional Materials: 10% / 20% Extracted, Processed and Manufactured.
