Generally, static electricity is created when contact between non-conducting materials and/or insulators results in an exchange of negative and positive charges. Although metals (having equal numbers of negative and positive charges) are conductors, they too can be statically charged, through a process called electrostatic induction. For example, placing an electrically-charged plastic rod near a neutral metal plate can temporarily cause the positive and negative charges to move to opposite sides of the plate. As long as the plate remains grounded, the charge will remain. Disrupt it and it will return to neutral. See the links below for more detailed explanations about static electricity and electrostatic induction.
