BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 19, 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, today released videos from last week’s test sample production run demonstrating the strength and fire resistance of NEXBOARD™, a high-performance, green composite building panel made primarily from plastic and cellulose fiber waste materials, such as cardboard. The latest sample boards will be directed to testing agencies for independent certifications and to major homebuilders and construction companies who are interested in transitioning to NEXBOARD, which is a critical step toward finalizing sales agreements. Homebuilders and the construction industry are migrating toward green building materials that promote a circular economic model, a trend that is forecasted to accelerate as viable alternative products become available. Two of the leading materials testing agencies were engaged last week to perform a variety of industry-standard physical and mechanical tests, including the NFPA 286 “room corner” test.
The YouTube videos show two internal tests, a five-minute flame test and a fastener pull-through test, using the most recent NEXBOARD samples. The videos may be found using the following links:
- Fire resistance – estimated 2,000ºF torch at about 12 inches for 5 minutes
- Fastener pull-through test – drywall screw holding strength in pounds of pressure
“We are pleased with last week’s successful production and internal testing of these new NEXBOARD samples and are confident these panels will meet certification requirements and be well-received by the construction industry as they begin to incorporate more sustainable building systems and materials. The testing agencies have informed us that the certifications could be completed within the next few weeks following receipt of the samples. NEXBOARD and our DUREVER brand next-generation building products promise to transform the industry,” commented Keith Duffy, CEO of Xeriant.
