Mine were wrapped in a couple of layers of cloth and then the cloth was saturated with paint . . . almost like they are in a plaster cast. Best to let somebody who is properly trained do the job.0

you could get the foil-backed, thin fiberglass insulation from the big-box store, and cover over what you have on the pipes now, secured with foil backed sticky tape. you would have to be well protected clothing-wise, and wear a breathing mask. remember that it is the removal/disposal which needs a special licence etc.

"who knew the celts knew about asbestos?].:"
It was 25 years ago but I took a course on remediation and the instructor mentioned blue a******s as the worst and that it is common in Celtic construction.
That remains with me today although I have not seen any albeit I try to avoid seeing any colors of the stuff.0
