Can anyone tell me what these ceiling tiles are made of? They are 12in x 12in. I am not sure how old they are. The house was built in the 68. I don't think they are original with the house. They appear pretty clean and white still compared to a tile that would be from the 60s or 70s They appear to be like Mdf particle board or a wood particle board. Do you think they contain asbestos? They are stapled down and we want to remove them.

It might be cellotex. I've painted a lot of them so the color doesn't mean much. I don't know if they have any asbestos in them
