    Hi,

    I appreciate, I had post same question over 6 months ago. At that time it wasnt very visible so I could not tell what it is. A handy man had a brief view and said it could be asbestos at the time. Now it's just started to come off and I could collect sample and hence the pictures.

    Can anyone advise what is this material?

    I know its stuck on paperboard. So the brown stuff (with fibre) is paper. But the grainy - powdery stuff thats stuck on it, I am not sure about?

    It came out of ceiling of an old porch. Before I take it out, I want to be sure its nothing like asbestos or something.

    Any idea?

    It looks like plasterboard but no one can be sure until it's tested. if you are worried, get it tested.
