    Unfortunately the only way to tell if the material is asbestos is to examine a bit of it under a microscope, and your safest approach is to assume it’s asbestos if you think it’s asbestos. In the USA, the Consumer Product Safety Commision has a hotline (800-638-CPSC) that you can call with questions. They can direct you further.Asbestos pipe insulation was manufactured from 1920 to 1972.
