Water repellency is a key factor in numerous applications including functional coatings, self-cleaning surfaces and protective coatings. A simple and efficient contact angle method is often used for characterizing the water repellency. However, in order to truly understand the repellency, dynamic contact angles need to be measured. In this webinar, we will go through the background and significance of dynamic contact angles:

  • Where do they originate from?
  • Why are they important and how they can be measured?

We will give examples of situations where a normal static contact angle measurement is not adequate for characterizing the water repellency of a surface. In the end of the webinar, you will have an opportunity to ask questions live from the presenter.
