Addressing cissing, one type of dewetting, in the April 2015 issue of CoatingsTech made me realize that it had been a longtime since I had discussed dewetting in general (not since the November-December 2004 issue).
Conducting reflow simulations on the connector pins showed evidence of outgassing from the plating and complete dewetting on the surface of the pins.
For example, simulations of explicit water between plate like solutes revealed that hydrophobic attraction and dewetting phenomena are strongly sensitive to the nature of solute-solvent dispersion interactions [11].
The amount of pigment in the formulation has a significant influence on the compatibility of the defoamer because the solid particles can slow or prevent the dewetting process from occurring around the defoamer.
This also supports the agglomeration of filler particle and dewetting of filler--matrix interface.
The eight papers in this collection survey current knowledge on evaporative self-assembly, drying a sessile droplet to form a pattern, the convective assembly process, dip coating, breath figure template assembly, and surface controlled dewetting.
So, for example, citrate was once advocated as providing a better cleansing action, and so could presumably influence dewetting of the lens surface whilst on the eye, (30) while buffers such as borate or phosphate have been assessed for whether there could be greater (or lesser) effects on the hydration (water content and / or desiccation susceptibility) of the lens matrix and so also influence the final adapted on-eye lens fit.
Our approach uses principles of polymer dewetting to produce artificial patterns,' says Chemistry Lecturer, Dr Chiara Neto.
No apparent skips or dewetting were noticed on resistors, capacitors or leaded chip devices.
