Re: asbestos flooring

it depends on the time frame its from, generally it has a white fibress core to it, if your not sure your best bet is to get a piece tested. there are labs you can take it to, just check your local yellow pages

It was also in some sheet goods along with tiles up to around 1979 ish.

9x9 composition tiles are the usual suspects. They are almost certain to be asbestos-laden.
