The anti-static treatment in mattress fabrics is based on the science of static electricity, which is a quite common phenomenon in everyday life. Interestingly, static electricity occurs when there is an imbalance in the number of electrons in an object, resulting in an accumulation of electric charge on its surface.

When a person lies down on a mattress, friction between the body and the mattress fabric can generate static electricity. This is what sometimes causes uncomfortable sensations, such as sparks or a tingling feeling when touching the mattress. The anti-static treatment aims to neutralize or dissipate this static electricity in a controlled manner to prevent these discomforts.

To achieve this, anti-static agents are applied to the mattress fabric. These agents help safely and gradually release any buildup of electric charge, making sleep much more comfortable and free from the annoyances of static electricity.


Did you know?

During the 1950s, with the increase in the production of electronic devices, it became evident that the buildup of static electricity posed a significant problem. Static electricity could damage delicate electronic components and affect the performance of equipment.

In this context, special coatings and materials with anti-static properties began to be used to prevent the accumulation of static charge.

The use of anti-static carpets, clothing, and footwear also became a common practice in cleanrooms and electronic device manufacturing environments.
