There are over 3000 suspect materials for asbestos. A good list of categories is found here: http://www.epa.gov/Region06/6pd/asbestos/asbmatl.htm

The only thing I recall about the 70s and asbestos was that the CPSC (consumer products safety commission) attempted to ban the use of it in certain building products. Later, in the 90s, the EPA came out with their Ban and Phaseout Rule which continued the attempt. It was later overturned by the courts because it overstepped their authority. Though this may be interesting trivia I don't think it really has much practical application to buildings. I've found all forms of asbestos in buildings built even into the early 80s. If you are concerned, the only thing you can do is get it tested. There are home test kits available and, of course, you can hire an asbestos inspector to do it also.
