I need help to determine if the eaves lining I have just demolished contains asbestos. I wore a p2 mask and glasses during demo but didn't consider it would be asbestos at all until a neighbour mentioned it could be (after I had completed it)
House was built in Brisbane, March 1992. The back of the board is stamped Hardiflex.
I have attached some photos. Freaking out a bit.

You can get it tested. I did that in Brisbane a few years ago when doing an install at my mother’s place. From memory, it cost about $50 and was worth it for the peace of mind.
Got it tested by COHLABS in Stones Corner. Came back as not being asbestos. Thanks for the advice.
Cost was $44 for one sample to get tested, same day results.
