For polyurethane biomaterials, the commonly used liquid in this test is water. The CA gives us important information about the polyurethane, such as hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity, surface tension, and surface reorganization kinetics [26–29]. Although CA seems like a very easy measurement, care must be taken during CA measurements since many factors can interfere with CA results: The water must be as pure as possible since impurity such as surfactants will drastically change the interfacial tension of water; the polymer surface must be thoroughly cleaned and should not have any extractable low molecular weight (MW) contaminants, such as unreacted monomers or wax or additives.
