Resumen Account of a series of tests to determine the tendency of plastic coverings to pick up static electricity charges, and the effects of static electricity on humans. Clinical observations of 83 subjects showed that the action of static electricity mainly took the form of functional changes in the nervous (71%) amd cardopvascular (44%) systems. In animals, certain significant effects of static electricity were noticeable as from 300V/cm; it was therefore proposed to fix the threshold limit value at 150V/cm. It was also noticed that static electricity had the side-effect of freeing harmful substances contained in the polymers and causing germ-carrying dust to accumulate on the plastic surface.
