This book says that woven asbestos brake lining was introduced to the United States by Raybestos about 1905 or 1906. It also says that in 1918 a molded lining with short asbestos fibre was patented.
This book lists all of the kinds of asbestos but says that chrysotile asbestos is the only kind used in brake lining.
This book details the use of asbestos in brake linings and even has a section on "yarn construction and manufacture" which is about manufacturing asbestos yarn, including crushing it, carding it, and more.
