poison ivey lotion is a solution(or suspension not sure) of
powdered calamine which is Zinc oxide and iron (III) oxide
and zinc when used to make various steel alloys and also to electroplate steel for galvanized steel (the stuff that chain linked fences are made of)
note electroplating is not the same as alloying
