Cemestos

I'm looking for information on this product. The Seattle MCM architect I'm researching used "cement asbestos" panels frequently. I take it this thin material was just used in a similar manner as glass? Simply put into a frame and not used as an exterior material covering an insulated wall as Hardy Panels are currently used.

On Wikipedia, it is called "asbestos cement." It was used extensively from the late 19th century through the 1940s. If it hadn't looked so "industrial" it might have been more popular, and there might be structures all over the place requiring asbestos removal. I have seen structures that used asbestos cement panels on the exterior; they don't age well.
