Abstract

Behavior of water sessile drop on polyimide surface with different surface energy values and two types of regular microtextures was investigated. Energy and geometrical factors defining drop form and effective contact angle in dependence on direction relative to given surface microtexture symmetry axes and surface slope were identified. Keywords: wetting, contact angle, polyimide, microstructured surfaces, specific free surface energy, anisotropy of wetting, wetting hysteresis, metastable state
