I think that's silicone impregnated fiberglass. Keenovo uses that type of material in their heaters. My Keenovo heater came with 3M 468MP sticky tape applied and it has been sticking perfectly to the aluminum bed plate in my printer.

Sticking a heater directly to glass is a bad idea- glass is a thermal insulator and won't heat evenly. Here's a thermal picture of a Taz printer with a heater glued directly to the glass.

Notice the temperature variation. It was difficult to get prints to stick everywhere on that printer until I replaced the glass with a cast aluminum tooling plate.

Here's what the same heater looks like on aluminum:
