Charge relaxation times of solid planar polymers were assessed with different charging methods in a controlled environment. Electrically isolated samples had relatively long relaxation periods. The longest measurement sequence was 62 hours. An electrostatic behavior of the samples under test was then characterized in a changing electrostatic field.
