Pop Quiz!

Posted on Monday, July 22, 2019

Test your powder coating knowledge interactively with others in our industry and enter for a chance to win a PCI long- or short-sleeved t-shirt!

How it works: We’ve developed questions that test your powder coating knowledge using a copy of PowderCoating: 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 using the subject line “Pop Quiz.” All correct answers received by the deadline will be entered in 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. 

This Issue’s Question:
Q: Your company powder coats one side of a two-dimensional part. What type of powder booth would be most suited for this type of part?

A. Batch Booth
B. Conveyorized Booth
C. Chain-On-Edge Booth
D. Flat-Line Booth

Last Issue’s Question:
Q: With the use of a reclaiming powder system, what percentage of the powder coatings being sprayed can potentially be utilized?

A. More than 95%
