5.Wetting – What is it?
Wetting refers to the contact between a fluid and a surface… If the surface is high energy, covering it with liquid will lower total system energy
6. interfacial energy equilibrium between the three phases.
7.Wetting – Test Method 1: Hotplate
8.Wetting – Test Method 2: Furnace Heating
9.Next Steps – Chloroform Wetting
Gave different data for different temperatures
Try wetting tests in the presence of chloroform
Check contact angles through this method
10.Next Steps – Different Compositions
Higher polymer percent
Test if polymer deficiency is the problem
Try both chloroforming and heating samples
Higher TCP percent
See if improves mechanical tests
Sinter and check mechanical properties again
