Electrostatic charges on a cotton yarn

  1. May 10, 2007 #1
    Usually, in textile industry, the important issue is to discharge the yarns from any electrostatic charges that might be stuck on it due to friction or other factors. What I need is completely the opposite; I want to put, on a yarn, electrostatic charges strong enough to make the yarn stuck on a specific surface.
    Any ideas about where or how I can start my research?
