Default Pipe Insulation

Does anybody know what this pipe wrap is made of? Sticky like tar. House was built in late 50's. Does not look like common asbestos insulation to me. Just checking to see what you guys think

If it were made of asbestos it wouldn't matter, nothing is going to "escape" that sticky mess!

That is an older pipe insulation primarily used in Refrigeration pipe applications (can't remember the name of it off the top of my head, maybe that "Old Fart" Charley will know).
