Reactive wetting of hexagonal BN by molten Al at 1073–1273 K was studied using an improved sessile drop method. The temperature and substrate surface roughness have a remarkable effect on the wetting behavior. Reasons for the large discrepancy in the final contact angles reported in the literature were addressed.
