Is this asbestos TSI??
2 Attachment(s)
It appears to my untrained eye to be fiberglass, but obviously I am not sure.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Not and issue but be sure to have PPE on if you disturb it (i.e. respirator, clothing, etc).

The insulation is fiberglass. The cloth wrap can sometimes contain asbestos. So can the coating on the outside of the cloth if it has any. And any cast in place materials at joints, valves or elbows will likely contain asbestos.
