Asbestos became a very popular commercial product because it was a relatively inexpensive, virtually indestructible material with desirable physical properties including chemical resistance, incombustibility, thermal insulating ability, electrical insulating ability, mechanical strength, flexibility and good friction and wear characteristics.

The term asbestos describes naturally occurring fibrous minerals found in certain types of rock formations.  Asbestos is mined in much the same way that other materials, such as iron, lead, and copper is.  Asbestos is contained in more than 3,000 different building products.  These include thermal insulation (pipe and boiler insulation), fireproofing, floor coverings, ceiling tile, cement pipe, and acoustical and decorative treatment for ceilings and walls.  Asbestos fibres are mixed during the processing with material which binds them together so they can be used in various applications.
