How to tell the difference between Asbestos Fibro and modern day Villaboard.


Asbestos Fibro Sheeting compared to modern day Villaboard. What they look like and what they break like.
DO NOT break anything that you think could be Asbestos unless it is fully wet down by soaking overnight in a bucket of water.

I am a licensed Asbestos Removalist, and have taken great care in preparing this sample. I am also wearing a PPE.

A side note:
Asbestos fibres do not enter your body through your skin.
They can enter through your eyes, ears, nose and mouth. All of these entry points lead to your stomach or lungs where the asbestos fibres do their damage.
(Yes your ears drain into your throat and your eyes drain into your sinuses)
