They are generally characterized by their innovative aspects. Such metals as steel, lead, copper, and zinc are produced in reasonably pure form and are later fabricated into useful shapes. When these tariffs were repealed, the British soda industry was able to rapidly expand.

Civilians rarely had a warning system put into place to alert their neighbors of the danger. Lenin's Soviet government employed poison gas in during the Tambov Rebellion. Yet the steel industry, for example, is not considered a part of the chemical industry.
