Results are given of an investigation of the extent to which water adsorbed on a silicate glass surface affects the spreading and the equilibrium contact angle of various pure organic liquids. Of especial interest is the effect of the transition of the physically adsorbed water film from a polymolecular to a monomolecular film. These results can be related to the effect of adsorbed water on the spreading or adhesion of resins to glass and other hydrophilic solids and to the problem of developing better adhesives for dental fillings.
