Zerostat 3 is a new development of the original piezo-electric pistol. It reduces static on insulating surfaces such as LP records, CD’s and DVD’s, etc. It produces negative and positive ions that couple with the positive and negative static charges on an object’s surface, effectively neutralizing them. The Zerostat 3 antistatic gun will produce dramatic static reduction for periods of time measured in hours, not minutes or seconds. And unlike certain antistatic sprays, the Zerostat gun will not leave any polymer resides behind on the record surfaces. We have found the Zerostat 3 to be equally effective in the removal of dust from plastic dust covers.
Use of the Zerostat 3 gun prior to the playing of a record will often times eliminate, or at least greatly reduce the “snap, crackle, and pop” from electronic discharge of the surface charge buildup that can occur.
