Forgot to include some relevant info. The vent pipe itself is not
required to be insulated (at least not the section I'm talking about, as
far as I know). That (section of) the vent pipe is indoor and near space
that needs to be accessed from time to time for other reasons. The
purpose of the insulation is to protect people from accidentally coming
into contact with the pipe.
