Antistat

I was looking for a cheap antistat for P.P.. The parts are sticking to the a side because of static. An air blast will help.

Tried a drier sheet on the parts? Cheapest thing I've found so far.
That or one of the anti-stat air generators.

Good one Rick, it has worked in the past for me.

Recent news though on those sheets that you place in the drier with your clothes indicates that they block the lint filter from working causing overheating. That, even after all the lint is removed; something about a thin film of an ingredient. I cannot help but wonder if they impart a surface coating to plastic.

I have used antistatic devices for this very situation;

You will need to make a bracket over the mold and attach the device to the top fo the mold using your bracket. Worked great for me.

Good Luck
