I though it was a resin sealer?
I am certainly not an expert on the topic of why they were not smoking in the Nuremberg Siemens factory in 1910, I was simply posing a possibility for discussion.

I worked in an electric motor rewinding shop for about a year as a grunt and most times, motor delivery. We couldn't smoke in the shop at all. We had to go outside to smoke and the boss would come out and tell use to get back to work or be fired. BUT, guess who would come around the shop with a pipe in their mouth, the shop air was filled with strong odors of lacquers at times! That was different!

In other news, good read on the Aircraft Engine Research Facility.
On January 23, 1941, ground was broken in Cleveland, Ohio, to create the facility now known as The NASA Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field (GRC). In 1943, at the dedication ceremony for the Center, Dr. George W. Lewis, NACA Director of Aeronautical Research, provided this prophecy: "There is no doubt as to the excellent quality of results that will flow from this laboratory." The accuracy of his prediction has been born out in the research done at GRC from its earliest days to the present.
Lots of google hits, but offering his one; https://history.nasa.gov/centerhistories/glenn.htm
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
