Anti-static operation of Econtras® Isolation Mattresses
How does static electricity occur?
Static means stationary. Static electricity is a stationary electric current. Static electricity is a surface phenomenon and occurs when two or more surfaces come into contact with each other and are separated again. As a result, a kind of splitting takes place, i.e. the transfer of negative electrons from one atom to the other. The intensity of the charge (the field strength) depends on a number of factors: the material, and its physical and electric properties, temperature, humidity, pressure and speed of separation. The higher the pressure or speed of separation, the higher the charge intensity.
