Electrostatics used in Disinfecting Surfaces

An example of when electrostatic charging occurs is when after combing your hair; the comb attracts pieces of paper, which is especially visible in the winter season when the weather becomes dry. This is because the comb becomes negatively charged and as a result, attracts neutral orpositively charged objects like the pieces of paper.

Positively charged droplets attract to neutral or negatively charged areas of the target surface, maximizing coverage of the discharged disinfectant. This wrapping “3D” coverage is not possible with traditional hand-pump sprayers absent an electrostatic system.
