Corrugated cement roofs in Glasgow.
It is extremely difficult to tell the difference between an asbestos cement product and a low-density board.
Manufacture of all low density products was stopped in the late 1970’s as they were not weather resistant, If the material is moulded then it will be asbestos cement, as low-density products were not moulded, except as half rounds for pipe lagging.
Is asbestos cement safe? Who is at risk?
The asbestos fibres in asbestos cement are found within the cement itself. The asbestos cement will have a cement-rich surface, and thus the fibres are contained.
The small quantities of fibres released during natural weathering of asbestos cement are unlikely to be any cause for immediate alarm.
However, dangerous amounts of fibres can be released if the cement is subject to any abrasive cleaning or working.
