(physics)
A liquid is said to wet a solid if the contact angle between the solid and the liquid, measured through the liquid, lies between 0 and 90°, and not to wet the solid if the contact angle lies between 90 and 180°.

First hypothesis suggests increased duration of contact with disinfectant (hypochlorite-based) leading to high contact angle making the impression material less wettable. Second hypothesis states that prolong exposure to disinfectant results in dissolution of surfactants and hence increased contact angle thereby making it free of any beneficial wetting characteristics.

Low-field nuclear magnetic resonance measures the time at which amplitude peaks occur after the addition of a small drop of water to the soil surface; for water-repellent soil, the time can be up to 1000 ms, compared with <100 ms for wettable soils (Manalo et al.
