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 Regard Paul PDL decs

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? A.L Smith Decorating Services
