Best Answer

It is probably sweat/condensation covering. We use isolators, hangers, plastic sleeves, 10 mil vinyl tape, and other items like those to prevent noise caused by temperature change (expansion/contraction) in water lines, and to prevent damage from abrasion when in contact with harder materials, and to protect from chemical damage when in contact with concrete, and to protect from electrolysis when in contact with dis-similar metals.
