Is kitchen wrap adhesive because of Electric Charge?

  1. Mar 19, 2013 #1
    Hello,

    I just came across this question and no answer could be find, my best assumption is that kitchen foil is simply 'holding' into positveley charged materials?

    Thanks,
    JJ

    N.B. It's not "foil". Foil is the terms for thin metal (a conductor). It's Film, we're discussing.
