I have an 85 Silverado with the same headliner problem. Does anyone know what that fibrous headliner board is made of?

The originals were made of a pressed board, and it wasn't the board that was the problem, it was the foam bonded to the headliner material that failed on almost every GM product of the era. To solve the problem for good, get an ABS plastic replacement. CLICK HERE

Pressed board but what was the material? It looks like thin layers of cardboard with a fiberglass mixed in? Does anyone know what the OEM headliner board was made out of?

On the trucks and some cars they are made of pressed fiberglass, and like Dan said the ABS boards are a good replacement for those boards.

The previous owner of my '79 Suburban just ripped out the cloth, wiped off the excess foam, and painted the backer board with latex house paint in a light beige that fit with the light brown interior. The leftover foam gives it some texture, and it actually looks like it could have been original. OK, sorta. That's one old ghost that'll never pat anybody on the head again.
