Insulating steam pipes

I live in a "garden level" condo (aka basement), that has steam pipes for the building that run thru it. Normal steam pipe fiberglass insulation is very thick and makes the pipes very obtrusive, and makes my condo seem very small. Has anyone tried any other type of insulation on home steam pipes (e.g., I see websites for a type of insulation that is like a very thick paint that is sprayed on)?

This stuff is expensive but I've seen it used on steam and it reduces the temp down so low you can touch the pipe. Its called super therm pipe coat.
