Definition
Tools, equipment, and supplies originally created for fabricating objects from homogenous, complex compounds, such as glass, clay, rubber, synthetic resins, plastics, or waxes. This class also includes the tools, equipment, and supplies used for producing such homogenous, complex compounds. These compounds differ from other materials because they generally require elaborate processing at some point during their use. As compounds, they differ from other processed materials such as leather because they are not discrete units; they differ from aggregate materials such as masonry because of their homogeneity and their need for elaborate processing.
