The wetting and spreading of distilled water droplets on abrasion-treated aluminum alloy AlMg 6 surfaces were studied. Using the shadow method, the dependences of the dynamic contact angle and hysteresis on the arithmetic mean of the profile deviation were obtained. Based on the analysis of the height and hybrid 3D roughness parameters, a relationship between the texture and spreading of the droplet is established.
