        The second floor of my house would have the same. Metal furring and cement fiber board. But my developer uses Flexboard. They say it's just the same as Hardiflex. Just different brand.

        Any feedback on Flexboard?

          Flexboard contains asbestos. Advertising clearly says 'chrysotile fiber cement board' but does not tell you that chrysotile = white asbestos. Eterton rep confirmed that Flexboard has asbestos, but said that he did not know what kind.

          Hardiflex does not contain asbestos, according to the MSDS found on an Australian website, which applies to what is sold in PH, according to a rep at James Hardie Philippines.

            Salamat, Sir Guad, for the info. I was a bit a alarmed upon reading the first sentence. My first thought was to replace the Flexboard with Hardiflex. Good thing that Chrysotile is the asbestos that's in Flexboard. Even the writer in the Inquirer article, Honesto General, has unknowingly used asbestos cement sheets with chrysotile. Seems that he has not replaced them.

              No, Neo. You should be alarmed. Asbestos in whatever form is dangerous. I'm unable to post a link right now but please lookup chrysotile in wikipedia.

                  Salamat, Sir joey81. I've looked it up. If chrysotile really poses a hazard to health when it is a component of some construction material like Flexboard, why is it that it still being allowed for use here?

                  Would it be a good idea then, to ask my developer to replace the Flexboard with Hardiflex? Construction is not on the second floor ceiling yet where Flexboard would be installed. Hopefully they would allow this change.

                    Sadly safety regulations here are not up to speed with those of more advanced countries. Just look at our local paints, its only now that they are starting to not use lead while in the US it has been banned (if im not mistaken) since the 60's.

                      I guess I have to ask the developer to replace the Flexboard with Hardiflex. Or if it is not possible, I would ask them not to install the Flexboard ceiling, and I'll have my renovation contractor to install the Hardiflex instead.

                        sorry to butt in.. but i have same inquiry, i mean im doing extra rooms in our house.. so im going to build ceiling and walls.

                        after reading previous post.. I think i will go for gypsum board.

                        May I ask, what is the price range of gypsum board?

                        Also, is the metal framing or not sure how its called.. cheaper that using 2x2 wood?

                        I live in Valenzuela, can you recommend the best place to buy this supplies?

                        Thanks a lot.

                          Hi just new here
                          Go for hardiflex yung 1/4" in size just like mine. Even if you accidentally hammered ok lang. Then use textured paint in finishing available in anyhardware... outcome hard like a rock.

                            hi new here.. I have a question since napagusapan na din ang asbestos from flexboard. Ung inorder ko kasi hardiflex pero ang dumating ay flexboard same lang daw un. Sabi sa hardware store wala daw asbestos ung flexboard na locally made bawal na daw kasi un. But I still insist na palitan ng hardiflex. Can somebody confirm on this para mapalitan ko na kagad? thanks. pang kwarto sana ng baby

                              Have replaced! Insist on getting the one you ordered. Gusto ka lang isahan ng supplier.



                              Their flyer screams "chrysotile".

                              Kung sa akin ginawa 'yan mawawalan na ako ng tiwala sa supplier and I wouldn't buy from them anymore. Di bale nang mapamahal nang konti kaysa naman niloloko ako.
