Solids

Values for the surface free energy of solids

We have put together a list of frequently used solids and their surface free energies for you from our literature database. This list is only a selection of important substances. You have access to further data in our information database or by sending a request to info@kruss.de.

Our further data provide additional information about:

  • the partition of the surface free energy into a disperse and a polar fraction
  • the further partition of the polar fraction into an acid and a base component
  • the fraction of hydrogen bridge bonds (Extended FOWKES method)
  • the related temperature for the data
