Xeriant Provides Update on NEXBOARD Certification Process

Company’s Eco-friendly Construction Panels Well-Positioned to Meet Growing Need for Safe, Affordable Housing

BOCA RATON, Fla., June 25, 2024 (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, provided an update on the production and certification of its eco-friendly NEXBOARD construction panels. Over the past several months, Xeriant executed its second successful pilot production run of its full-size 4’x8’ panels using a U.S. contract manufacturer, which was designated for testing and to provide samples to national homebuilders. Following dozens of internal and third-party tests, the Company has greatly improved the panel’s properties, and is now finalizing critical modifications to the filler composition to improve the panel’s weight and rigidity. 

The third NEXBOARD pilot production run of its full-size 4’x8’ panels, scheduled for mid-July, will be monitored and documented by one of the leading accredited testing and certification agencies. The next major milestone, which the Company has been diligently working toward, will be passing the 15-minute NFPA 286 “corner room” test, an extremely demanding fire test used to evaluate fire safety performance related to flame spread, smoke production and heat release.

Pending NEXBOARD’s NFPA 286 certification, the Company will begin the commercial phase of production via a contract manufacturer followed by the financing and buildout of multiple large-scale manufacturing centers strategically located throughout the U.S. to meet the needs of its current clients.

“A couple of weeks ago, our quarter inch thick 4’x8’ NEXBOARD construction panels completed an 11-minute NFPA 286 trial test that was requested by a national homebuilder who was pleased with the results. This first 286 test provided valuable data needed to refine the panel’s composition to meet specific code requirements and achieve certification. We are confident that NEXBOARD will meet the highest building standards in the U.S. for their prescribed applications,” commented Keith Duffy, CEO of Xeriant.

A top White House economist recently announced the federal government’s goal of creating two million affordable homes in an ambitious program to address the national housing crisis. With Xeriant’s eco-friendly NEXBOARD on the verge of certification, production, and commercialization, the Company is well-positioned to play a leading role in this national effort. 

NEXBOARD is at the forefront of the rapidly growing green construction materials market, projected to reach $1.2 trillion by 2032 according to Fortune Business Insights. The robust development of next-generation building products is driven by the need for eco-friendly alternatives that address unsustainable environmental trends, as well as the pursuit of greater durability and longevity compared with current conventional products. The construction industry uses about 60 percent of all natural resources, either directly or indirectly (The Constructor), while contributing about 33 percent of waste (International Solid Waste Association) and 40 percent of CO2 emissions (World Economic Forum).
