  4. Heloo fellows, yet another question this is more of a safty based question tho Now the B2 pads look fantastic, with all the goodys packed away inside them, But... is the form that holds all the items in place made from Asbestos? or is it just hardend wool fibers? anyone have any info on this fellows? I could see how the Asbestos would help to keep everything in good shape in case of fire or even pressure... But very lost on this. and any help would be greatfull Kind regards and many thanks -Ric

Hoping someone could help me out, thanks guys
