contact points only θ = 180° no wetting Improvement of wetting cleaning and smoothing of surface Ing.contact angle γSG = γSL + γLG. Ph. Department of Textile Materials 17 . Blanka Tomková.3. rough surfaces also roughnesses in microscopic scale contamination by oxides. dust particles etc.cosθ θ = 0° spontaneous wetting Wetting of real surface: Two electrically neutral. hard.D. Textile Composites Adsorption and wetting Adsorption Adsorption is the accumulation of atoms or molecules on the surface of material This process creates a film of the adsorbate (the molecules or atoms being accumulated) on the adsorbent's surface Wetting θ .

Blanka Tomková. Ph.D. Textile Composites Interdiffusion strength of joining is influenced by number of diffusive molecules conformation of molecules molecular movement entanglements Electrostatic attraction two oppositely charged surfaces interaction of acid and base oppositely charged ions positively charged groups on molecular ends are attracted by anions rised from polymer orientation strength of interface depends on charge density it is not wet-stable Ing.
