Test your powder coating knowledge interactively with others in our industry and enter for a chance to win your own limited-edition PCI long- or short-sleeved t-shirt! How it works: We’ve developed questions that test your powder coating knowledge using a copy of Powder Coating: The Complete Finisher’s Handbook. PC Pop Quiz questions can be found in each issue of PCT. Put on your thinking cap and then email your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject line “PC Pop Quiz.” All correct answers received by the deadline will be entered in to a drawing to win an official PCI long- or short-sleeved t-shirt! In each subsequent issue of the magazine, the correct answer and the lucky winner’s name will be published.
The question for the May/June edition of PC Pop Quiz, along with the answer is:

The answer is: False. You will often see powder coatings touted as “VOC free.” However, that isn’t quite accurate. On page 246 of the Powder Coating Handbook you will read that under enhanced conditions, powder coatings as a whole are not VOC free, but because of very low VOC content, powder coating will remain the Best Available Control Technology (BACT) for air pollution. It is more accurate to refer to powder coatings as “virtually VOC-free.”
The number of respondents we get for PC Pop Quiz continues to grow! We appreciate all those who took the time to participate.
This month’s winner is: Todd Carvell, Keystone Koating, Lititz, PA. The t-shirt you selected is on its way.
