static on perspex
« on: June 14, 2012, 11:58:52 AM »

Just fitted three quite large perspex windows, they were perfectley clean when I put them in but coming back to them this morning I find they are covered in dust on the inside. I presume this is caused by static. is there a way of getting rid of this static.

Now, you may laugh but....
I belive that you can blow ... yes just blow the static away on perspex but it does come back in time.

I posted elsewhere on this forum ... probably under the name Talisman the Plastic workshop book.
Sorry i'm not about to trawl for it but it is worth a read.

Kim,

Sad to say I couldn't find it even after searching under Talisman.
Suppose the meltdown has something to do with it.
Can we bend your arm to repost it.
Also would it not be possible for the moderators to group such reference/tutorial  materials in one location/heading

As I said on the other thread mate - we humans solve our problems best by communicating.
Got to go now, the PM and G8 are on the other line {-) {-) {-) The Economy - now there's a boat that really has sailed <:(
