The effects of silica particle addition on the wetting velocity on flat and fractal agar gel surfaces were analyzed along with the applicability of such particles for controlling the wetting dynamics of water. The contact angles (θD) of the colloidal dispersions obeyed the power law, i.e., θD∝t(-x), where t is time and x is a constant. Wetting was inhibited(More)
The purpose of this experiment was to determine the hardness values of the hybrid layer and its surroundings through the continuous use of a microhardness measuring device. Black's Class V cavities were prepared in nine dog teeth. The cavities were divided into four groups according to the dentin adhesive system applied. The adhesive systems were: "Bond One(More)
The elastomer materials with hierarchical structure and suitable wettability are useful as biological surface model. In the present study, urethane resin and silicone resin elastomers with hierarchical rough surfaces were prepared and referred to as "fractal elastomers". We found a hierarchy of small projections that existed over larger ones on these(More)
Agar gels with hierarchical rough surfaces, referred to as "fractal agar gels," were prepared to model biological surfaces coated with mucus. Agar gels with rough surfaces of fractal dimension D = 2.2 were synthesized by transferring a fractal surface structure of alkylketene dimer (AKD). The rough structure accelerated the spreading of water droplets and(More)
We have experimentally observed anomalous spreading of aqueous alcohol solutions on flat and rough fractal agar gel surfaces. On flat agar gel surfaces, extremely fast spreading [θ(D)(t) ∝ t(-0.92)] that differs from Tanner's law [θ(D)(t) ∝ t(-0.3)] was observed when the liquid contained over 9 wt % of 1-propanol in which strong Marangoni flow was observed(More)
