Electrons temporarily removed from various items can cause static charges. Whatever has excess electrons has a negative charge; the object from which electrons have been taken will be positively charged. Electrons will tend to jump from one object to another if at all possible in order to neutralize all charges. This behavior differs from electrical current, or electrodynamics; instead, electrostatics and charges are termed static electricity.
Refers to an electrical charge, which may affect synthetic thread during sewing. An Anti-stat is usually added to the thread lubricant to minimize the effect of static.
the build up of electrical charges on a surface produced by the contact and separation of dissimilar materials.
A build-up of electrical charges that are released all at once when they find an object of the opposite charge. The spark that results releases the charges and returns the object to a neutral charge. Lightning is a powerful example of static electricity. Static electricity is also, what makes your clothes stick together when they are removed from the dryer.
energy created by an imbalance between the number of positive and negative particles between materials. Contact and separation of the unlike materials produce static electricity
Unpredictable electrical charges in the atmosphere that interfere with radio reception, computer networking, and the like.
Denoting or pertaining to an electric charge that is at rest..
Electrons temporarily removed from various items can cause static charges. Whatever has excess electrons has a negative charge; the object from which electrons have been taken will be positively charged. Electrons will tend to jump from a negatively charged object to a positively charged. object.
An accumulation of electric charge on an insulated body
electricity produced by friction
movement of charges from one object to another without further movement
Whenever your body comes in physical contact with metal parts (including printed circuit boards) of computer equipment the potential exists for you to feel an electrical shock (electrostatic discharge or ESD), which could damage the equipment. To prevent this you must always wear a wrist strap when working with the internal parts of a workstation.
A form of electrical energy that results from an imbalance of positive and negative charges.
An electrical charge on a substrate or application equipment, usually initiated by friction in combination with low humidity.
Charges of electricity sometimes generated during handling or in machine operations; may cause undesired attraction of film to roller, flat surfaces, etc.
Created when electrons "jump" from one atom to another. You can create static electricity by rubbing certain things together, such as a brush and your hair. Lightning is also an example of static electricity.
An electrical charge frequently found in paper which is too dry or which has been affected by local atmospheric conditions.
Electric field that is present primarily due to the presence of electrical charges on materials.
Static electricity (or just "static") is the name used to cover those phenomena that involve charges that are not moving (much)--ie. they are static. The other form of electrical phenomena is current electricity, where the charges are moving in a large-scale, organized way.
the electricity associated with electric charges, which tends to stay ‘static' rather than flowing away
Stationary charge in a state of equilibrium.
The uneven balance of charge on an object. The charges are not in motion because they have no where to go.
Literally â€œelectricity at rest.â€ Static electricity is the stored energy that becomes dangerous when it becomes an ESD event. Static electricity is the result of the exchange of electrons that occurs during friction between objects. This friction causes the ESD event, which can disrupt production, cause fires, damage computers and sensitive electronic components, cause computers and other electronic equipment to malfunction and lose important data.

Exists when positive and negative charges (quantities) of electricity are produced and kept apart by non-conductors. An object that acquires extra electrons is said to have a negative charge, one that looses electrons, a positive charge. Go to top
Static electricity is a stationary electric charge that is built up on a material.
A build-up electrical charge on the surface of a substrate or other surfaces, usually induced by friction and usually under low atmospheric humidity conditions.
See electrostatic charge.
Charges of electricity that may be contained by paper which has been improperly dried or has sustained excessive pressure in calendering. It is particularly apparent in paper which is too dry, but can also exist in properly dried paper which has become affected by local atmospheric conditions after shipment.
A type of electrical charge that can build up when two objects rub together. Friction removes some electrons from one object and deposits them on the other.
An electrical charge that builds up due to friction between two dissimilar materials. Friction removes some electrons from one object and deposits them on the other.
describes the situation where objects carry a charge.
A form of electricity that is created when an object has too many electrons, giving it a negative charge.
Stationary electric charges.
an electrical charge caused by an imbalance of electrons on the surface of a material.
The creation of an accumulation of electrical charges on opposing surfaces either by the separation of unlike materials or by the movement of surfaces.
Stationary electricity that is in the form of a charge. The accumulated electric charge on an object.
