Agreed. Asbestos was banned from most products here in 1982, but existing stocks were still allowed to be used up. I was told by a abatement contractor about a popcorn ceiling installed in 1992 that tested positive. Must have been old stock. I came across a 1989 roof with some asbestos cement tiles mixed in with the non-asbestos ones, that was a PIA to strip in the summer heat. In about 2006, I noticed a single unused sheet of corrugated AC roofing still on its original pallet alongside the fibrecement sheet products at a local building supplier. Must have been there since about '83, and been moved a few times since the supplier had built a new warehouse in the '90s, and I'd been there many times without noticing it.
