The effect of Surface roughness and wettability on biocompatibility of biomaterials and Medical devices.
Wenzel equation states that adding surface roughness will enhance the wettability caused by the chemistry of the surface.
Wood-plastic composites are relatively new materials as they started to emerge at the beginning of the 90’s. The most widespread use of WCPs is in outdoor decking but it is also used in railings and siding as well as park benches and indoor furniture.
Surface roughness and wettability in paper and board
Wettability of a paper or board depends on the coatings and treatments done to it. By measuring the wettability, deviations in coatings and treatments can be observed
