3/8" pipe insulation

I am interested in insulating some hot water pipes that
Asbestos was removed from. 3/4 inch ; brass in an old brownstone.

Is 3/8 thick insulation thick enough? It has an
r factor of 2.4. If not, what should I use.

3/8" pipe insulation

I think 3/4" foam is also available. The R value is a little over 3.
