Scientists should try and keep their labs at 50% relative humidity and temperature to 23-24°C. Anytime the lab conditions drop below these conditions, there is an increase in chance of having contaminants penetrate the silicone rubber or be deposited on the surface of the silicone. Silicones have a high static charge by nature and the drier the atmosphere, the more static that builds up.
