Default Prepping and painting Asbesdos

Hello everyone!






I am preparing to paint my house, which has asbesdos cement siding. While ordinarily I understand that you should gently wash the siding, let it dry, prime and paint, I've realized that my asbesdos looks a bit...different. It seems to have grains all over it, much like an asphalt shingle. In the attached picture, you can see a "clean" asbesdos panel, and a panel from my house.


My question is, what is this coating, and is there a good way to prep it for paint? The grains seems to rub off, but not easily (very much like a roof shingle). I experimented with a mold cleaner and gentle wiping, but it seems as though the grains are just part of the siding.


Thank you!

I just had a guy call me for an estimate with asbestos for sidind and lead paint on the trim. House is right next to high volume road. I think I am going to pass.
