Asbestos cement-based materials that were once commonly used as internal walls and ceiling linings contain around 15% asbestos fibres by weight. If possible, this kind of asbestos cement product should be removed unbroken. If you discover that such material has sustained damage while still in place, it can be reinforced by using duct tape.
