Reading alot on here and static/friction seem to be a big concern/problem mixing chemicals. Was looking for some thoughts on the possibility of using these anti-static bags for mixing chemicals ie putting chemicals in a bag then put into a ball mill, use to mix/shake and replace the diaper method. Any thoughts appreciated.

While they might reduce static charge build up while mixing (not upon opening though), it would definitely not reduce the friction as the chems would still be rubbing against each other, probably MORE vigorously than in traditional diaper method.

A plastic bag develops the same charge inside across the whole thing so there are no points in there too cause an arc. You are the static danger so ground yourself.

Makes good sense. Thanks to both of you for your answers

Outstanding topic, Always pays to have a safety briefing before construction, even if it is only with yourself.
Static Electricity nearly stalled the space program in its infancy. Technicians working of computer boards failed, in the beginning, to understand why they were having so many failures. It was determined after a while that static electricity was "zapping" sensitive components. Grounding straps on technicians worked to get us on top of the space race. Then came the "Pink Poly" bags to transport and store sensitive electronic equipment and now..............to Mars we go
Range day was all cotton clothing, no windbreakers made of nylon or other polyester item. R.S.O's were very particular about range gear.
I live in a very dry climate and it scares the hell out of me when the wind blows on range day. But it was all good when you had a good K.F.B
