If I wanted to reduce the amount of static electricity on an object that encounters frictional forces because of it's sole task, what would I wrap it in?

Also, what is antistatic material usually made of? Ex:Computer parts bags.

Conductive plastics or Mylar.

It already is.

Well, the motor in it is... The moving parts couldn't be grounded separately.

What exactly do you have?

If you can you should strap a long haired cat to it.   It may not help with the static, but a pissed off cat with all it's hair sticking straight out would be really funny.

Are the moving parts plastic?    You could use a conductive grease.

I'm not sure exactly what your application consists of, but I deal with this every day with plastic and Mylar converting machines. We use ionizers to neutralize the static. Takk industries makes some good stuff, as does Panasonic.

If you can't use a humidifier, try an Air ionizer

This.

If you take whatever it is and literally wipe the heck out of with a dryer sheet, you'll reduce the static electricity significantly.

I've got *ROLLS* of ESD tape, like fifty of them, sitting in close proximity to me.

Too bad you're not a Yankee, I'd just give you one.
