I found this roll of material in an old-timer's garage as I was helping his daughter clear it out.
It measures 0.95" wide.

Band Material

I think not.

If it were dyed black, it might be a good match to the later cars door limiter strap material. :-)

Michael,

That looks like pipe insulation, something they call "quick wrap" around here. BUT there are a lot of products that have a similar appearance.

Good Luck,
Terry

Asbestos??

Thanks for the info. Initially I thought it might be manifold or exhaust wrap.

It sure looks a lot like the exhaust wrap I've used in the past, Don.

It's not asbestos per US EPA laws. Michael and Don, yes it is also used as exhaust pipe insulation. Around here, they usually coat it with a green mixture that mostly waterproofs, gives structure, and mostly fixes it in place but allows for fairly easy removal when needed.

Example of asbestos tape:

Years ago an elderly neighbor gave me this seven inch roll of 2.5" asbestos tape used for boiler and furnace door gaskets and wrapping pipes, etc. (He also used to have sheets of asbestos - got a piece of that from him one time for a small project.)

It also looks a lot like brake lining material. Just a thought.

That needs to be properly disposed of quickly. I'm holding my breath just looking at the picture.

If the roll of asbestos is kept on a shelf, there's no risk at all, if it's worked on there's a moderate increased risk as long as you're not smoking. It's for smokers the asbestos is a real killer. No need to dispose of such an interesting item out of scare, better to stop smoking :-)

That is NO asbestos, it's hemp strapping, used by upholsterers in (under) seat cushions with metal springs in them.
I should know, my wife has a upholstery shop.

The roll in Michael Saggeses first post isn't asbestos, but the roll in Erik Johnsons post at November 08, 2017 - 09:26 am may well be.
