Unknown black material on rear a/c condenser pipes

Can anyone tell me what the black spongy tar like substance on the a/c condenser pipes in the rear of my Ex are? It's is put on at the factory but no one at Ford or anywhere else I've been can tell me what it is. I'm relatively sure it keeps the pipes from sweating.

Thanks

Thats exactly what it does and helps to keep it cooler. All externally mounted expansion valves (outside of the evaporator case) should be wrapped to work properly. If you need any you can buy some from Napa its part #209491, it comes in a role

Cork insulation tape more that likely. I haven't looked at mine but it looks kinda like tar & spongy. We use it in the AC industry a lot for temporary repairs in insulation usually or around a valve that needs to be insulated.

By the way the lines in the back are liquid line (coming from the condenser to metering device & rear coil) & suction line. Suction line will be cooler
