Wetting angle
Fig. 1. For the definition of the wetting angle Q
Wetting is the ability of liquids (molten metals) to form boundary surfaces with solid states (ceramics, refractory materials). The wetting is determined by measuring the contact angle, which the liquids forms in contact with the solids. The wetting tendency of a melt is larger, the smaller the contact angle Q or the surface tension is.
