    Does this answer your question? Is this Asbestos? – Daniel Griscom Jan 21 at 3:03

You cannot tell by looking. Many non-asbestos products look like asbestos and asbestos itself appears very differently in different products.

The only safe approach is to have it tested before disturbing it in any way.
