Title Industrial hygiene evaluation of the static electricity accumulation potential of plastics used on board ships

Abstract The electrostatic field on the surface of plastics used for the interior fittings of ships depends on microclimatic conditions (relative atmospheric humidity), the duration of previous use of the ship, the degree of saturation of premises with plastics and their arrangement. Measurements carried out showed that this charge is often 2 to 3 times greater than the 200V/cm established by existing provisional standards. It is possible to reduce the electrostatic charge by using wood and metals together with plastic. The mounting of plastic strips by means of metal laths has proved most efficacious.
