Abstract

The wetting behavior of polymers is reviewed beginning with the thermodynamic conditions for contact angle equilibrium. The critical surface tension of polymers is discussed followed by some of the current theories of wettability, notably the theory of fractional polarity and theories of contact angle hysteresis. The nonequilibrium spontaneous and forced spreading of polymer liquids is reviewed from two points of view, the surface chemical perspective and the hydrodynamic perspective. There is a wide disperity between these two viewpoints that needs to be resolved inorder to establish the predictive relations that govern spreading behavior.
