Last Issue’s Question:  
The question for the July/August edition of Pop Quiz, along with the answer is:

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

 A: The correct answer is D and can be found on page 146 of the Handbook. Flat-line booths are primarily designed for the one-sided coating of two-dimensional parts of minimal thickness. When a two-sided coating is required, it can be accomplished using a two-pass process.

Editor’s Note: Some respondents noted there is no such thing as a two-dimensional part. While this is technically correct, the Handbook uses the phrase to describe a thin, flat part.

Last issue's winner is:
