The present invention recently patented generally relates to a wet wipe or sheet that is suitable for contacting the skin and that has a stratified wetting composition therein.
Starfactant wetting agents are star-shaped hyperbranched polymers for substrate wetting that efficiently lower static and dynamic surface tension to help coatings wet difficult-to-wet substrates, while helping to eliminate foam.
Recently, wetting balance was used to evaluate the wetting properties of several alternative solder alloys and, in particular, lead-free solders.
The wetting balance testing was conducted with freshly cleaned coupons and clean coupons that were oxidized for one hour at 100 degrees C.
Solder wetting measurements were conducted using a wetting balance tester.
Conversely, carbon black dust cannot be dispersed in water without assistance such as a wetting agent or steam grinding.
One would expect that the directed orientation of the silane molecule, even by association, would make it act as a wetting agent, pacifying the polar sites on the surface of the silica.
Dry mixing silica has the further difficulty of wetting and dispersing an initially incompatible material in the rubber.

Matte Time Test--indicates the coating's substrate wetting properties and a correlation to drying time by measuring the time it takes for the applied coating to lose its wet, glossy look and take on a matte finish.
There are similarities in that adequate initial contact is generally ensured by good wetting.
The quantitative study of wetting phenomena dates from the beginning of the 19th century when Young in England[3] and Laplace[4] in France considered what happens when a liquid is placed in contact with a solid.
