Wetting is known as a ubiquitous natural phenomenon where a layer of fluid material is covered invariably with a solid substrate. This involves the surface forces resulting in the equilibrium surface coverage and wetting of a substrate that comes in contact with a liquid drop. There are various scenarios for the transition of the wetting phase that occurs based on the nature of the surface forces. Here, the super wetter is considered the substrate wetting agent, which increases the contact between liquid and substrate and reduces the surface tension. Superwetting surfactants help solve various problems at one time in different end-use industries like agriculture, paints & coatings, and other industrial applications. Moreover, the superwetting surfactants have the multi-functional characteristic that is widely used in developing high-performance varnishes and coatings formulations.
