Artex is a textured coating and the brand name of Artex Ltd. There were other producers of textured coating but Artex was the market leader and the name that everyone associates with textured coatings of the time.

Textured coatings like Artex became popular in the 1970’s and 1980’s as an alternative to wall papering and covering unsightly bare plaster. It’s popularity was driven by the fact that anyone with a roller could apply it and in most cases. get a decent finish to their work.

Textured coatings originally contained chrysotile (white) asbestos bonded in the mix for strength and longevity. UK Chrysotile use was banned in November 1999 so there’s plenty of textured coatings still containing asbestos out there in homes and commercial premises.
