Xeriant provides Movychem Commercialization update

Company celebrates Earth Day by announcing that it’s entering Product Testing Phase with Global Industry Leaders

BOCA RATON, Fla., April 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xeriant, Inc. (OTC PINK: XERI), a new aerospace and advanced materials technology holding company, and its affiliate Xeriant Europe s.r.o announced today that Retacell, Movychem’s fire protection product, is in the process of being tested and evaluated for specific certification designations, and is being field tested by leading global manufacturers. This proven technology represents not only a breakthrough for aviation and other transportation applications, but for green construction and many other uses.

“Shortly after announcing our joint venture with Movychem through Xeriant Europe, we received overwhelming interest from several industry leaders looking to enhance the fire protection properties of various building materials. In fact, as part of the initial testing phase for Movychem’s fire protection technology, we’ve been asked to remanufacture plastics, wood-based composites and powder coatings in our facilities in the Czech Republic to demonstrate our ability to deliver cost effective green solutions that exceed current U.S. fire retardant thresholds,” commented Xeriant, Inc. CEO, Keith Duffy.

“Xeriant Europe has entered into agreements with manufacturers of patented eco-friendly technologies that complement Xeriant’s long-term business strategy. The product pipeline currently being tested by globally recognized corporations will allow Xeriant to gain the recognition needed to bring these new high-demand advanced materials and technologies to market,” stated Henry Biza, President and CEO of Xeriant Europe.

Duffy concluded, “Henry Biza, who heads Xeriant Europe, has done an outstanding job in identifying innovative technologies that best address large, underserved markets while confirming their efficacy to strengthen our commercial portfolio.”

According to a research report by Mordor Intelligence, the global flame retardant chemicals market size was estimated at approximately USD 7.5 billion in 2020 and the market is projected to have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 5% during the forecast period from 2021 through 2026.
