I find it is easier to take them down one or two at a time, clean them and paint with a roller. I use ceiling paint. Good luck and stay safe! P.S. This is for drop in tiles. If the tiles are fastened in place I would dust them well and use a roller and brush.🙂
Hello Abu Lam'yaa Moh,
White Emulsion Paint would be right for this project!
Make sure you prime them first! If those cardboard tiles get too wet they will swell.
I found a few ceiling tile posts for you also:
Sherwin Williams ceiling paint would be my recommendation. I’ve used most brands and it is the best, I haven’t tried Benjamin Moore yet.
Hello they make a dedicated product for ceiling tile stains by Armstrong we used it and it’s it is pretty effective.
You might consider $1 white spray enamel. The big box DIY stores have this $1 spray enamel labeled as “project paint”.
It won’t saturate the tiles.
If you are also painting the metal deviders, use spray paint for those or they will rust. I recommend you remove all the ceiling tiles and paint them separately and spray paint the frames. Then put it all back together.
We used flat ceiling paint for our tiles
Roller works best and small paint brush for the metel
Latex paint should work on those ceiling tiles.

Well, there is a lot of work to be done here, although it seems the previous owners tried to take care of this a little.
I'd probably use a paint sprayer
Hi Abu: Just about any paint should work, although I'd avoid using an oil based paint. Latex would be your best bet. If you have, or can rent, a spray painter, that would make things go really fast. If you don't want to paint the rails, you can remove the panels and paint them separately and replace them when they are dry. And, while they are out, if you want to paint the rails a different colour, now is the time, while the panels are out. They are easy to remove and replace. Good luck
