What’s Hydrophilicity?

Hydrophilicity is a surface’s ability to absorb water, with hydrophilic surfaces easily breaking bonds between water molecules and bonding with them. Hydrophobic surfaces repel water. Hydrophilic surfaces can dry out through evaporation. Hydrophilicity can be determined by observing how quickly a surface absorbs water and can vary with different liquids. It is important for engineers […]
