I can't find a supplier of lagging cloth for encapsulating asbestos steam pipe insulation in my area. I live in Fall River Mass. in the southcoast area between Providence RI and Cape Cod. Any suggestions?

The product you are looking for is the "cloth jacket" that covers the "lagging" (block insulation) of pipes. The cloth jacket is finished with "sizing", a liquid applied to seal the pores of the cloth and to make the cloth somewhat rigid. This process is still used, but is becomming less common with the advent of metal and plastic jackets. Although they tend to discourage retail sales, you should be able to obtain these products through a commercial heating/AC contrator. Because of liability and health concerns, most installations of asbestos insulation are being abated. You might want to consider this before spending the time and money to rework the jacketing.
