Hi guy's, we run into asbestos once in a while, had a Zenith radio that the asbestos fell from the top of cabinet laying on top of the chassis. Found a replacement, I use a silicone baking sheet good up to 450 degrees. It sells in a roll easy to cut, but I found it very hard to glue so I just staple it in place. Find it in the cooking section at your favorite store.

I've been thinking of using Kapton. It comes in sheets or rolls of tape.
From an ebay auction:
"Polyimide is an advanced polymer originally developed for the aerospace industry. It has high temperature resistance over 300oC (572oF). At very high temperatures such as 350oC the film may become darker, buckle, but will not burn and will not melt on your work surface. "

Ceramic insulation is available in rolls, is inexpensive, and does the same jobs as the original, preventing heat damage or fire prevention.

+1 for Stephen's ceramic cloth recommendation.... Off eBay I got a sheet delivered for (I think) $9.

When I worked with it, they called it "ceramic mat."

I've successfully used a silicone kitchen hot pad.
