We are working with small calcium carbonate particles (microfossils) but one of the problems is they stick to the plastic or metal tools we are using, presumably due to static charge. For example, small particles on plastic tray will stick to the surface even if it is upside down.
- I'm guessing the static potential is related to how much calcium carbonate wants to gain or give away electronics?
- What is this called in this context?
- How do I choose a material that has a low potential for static electricity (i.e. sticking) with calcium carbonate particles?
