I inherited this electric furnace and I'd like to identify the material it's made from. I've not managed to find any record online, but the company itself no longer exists.
Given its vintage (90s at the very latest, possibly older if the digital control is a more recent addition), and purpose (insulating a very hot thing), something asbestos-based seems fairly likely, but I wouldn't know how to recognise it.
I realise this might not be the very best place to ask the question, but DIY is the only stack exchange site that mentions asbestos. Is it likely to be asbestos?
