The textured acoustical plaster pressed into wire lathe in W150 is up to 20% chrysotile asbestos (see samples #81201K46 and K48). This brown-coat plaster is covered with soft, fluffy asbestos-free spray-on insulation. The suspended ceiling tile is also asbestos-free. Please use caution when removing ceiling tile, since there may be plaster debris on the top surface of the tile. This debris is from where penetrations have been made in the brown-coat.
