Hi most artex contains white (cryolite ) as bestos which
Is totally different to fibres to blue our brown
The fibres are flexible and coils whitch make them
Less likely to lodge on your lungs but you can
Get it tested . Hope that helps

Hi Alex, it's unlikely but is best to get it checked, I assume you are considering removing the Artex, why not just plaster over?

Asbestos was banned in 1978 but when dealing with anything you are not sure of always best to ask an expert

Hi Alex I don't think it would have asbestos in from the 90 s but you could always have it tested you could just have it plastered over regards Steve plasterer heywood

It should be safe it's the 80s & before artex today is safe , it can be boarded or plastered over if worried
