BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xeriant, Inc. (OTCQB: XERI) (“Xeriant” or “the Company”), a Company dedicated to the discovery, development, and commercialization of aerospace technologies and advanced materials, announces today that it has engaged two leading accredited testing agencies to perform a series of globally-recognized tests to assess the physical and mechanical properties of NEXBOARD TM , an eco-friendly, patent-pending composite building panel made primarily from recycled plastic and cardboard that is resistant to fire, water, insects and mold. Viewed as a significant component in the commercialization process, the third-party testing will measure and certify the critical safety and performance features of NEXBOARD, including its strength, resistance and insulating capabilities, and provide a basis for comparison with traditional building materials like drywall, plywood, OSB, MDF and MgO board.
One of the critical tests being completed, which is among the most requested tests by homebuilders, is the NFPA 286 or “room corner” test, a flammability test established by the National Fire Protection Association to determine the contribution of interior finish materials to room fire growth during specified fire exposure conditions. Along with the NFPA 286, the testing agencies will conduct the ASTM E84 test, measuring flame spread and smoke development, and tests related to moisture and water resistance, thermal and acoustic insulation, VOC emissions, tensile strength and hardness.
“We are working with some of the most respected testing agencies in the United States to validate the superior performance features of NEXBOARD. We are planning to submit our most recent NEXBOARD panels with updated composite formulations for the fire and thermal transmission testing and certifications next week,” said Keith Duffy, CEO of Xeriant.
