Modular pipe insulation question

I just inspected a modular that had insulation on some of the copper pipes. The insulation however Was different than anything I’ve ever seen. It was gray almost like old duct tape material sealers around a brittle rust colored material. Any comments ?

Ya… got pic’s?
