One type is called Chrysotile, or, most commonly referred to as "White Asbestos" that has a melting point of 1500°C. Because if its resistence to both high heat and chemicals it was widely used from the 1880's to the late 1970's in many industrial applications, as well as in many homes.
Old buildings are full of asbestos. The best thing to do is encapsulate. If it is friable, in bad condition, call asbestos abatement crews to come treat it. Asbestos poses no threat if it is in good contition.
