Change of the static contact angle (SCA) of 10 μL distilled water droplet on laser textured aluminium alloy (AMG-6) substrates was studied. The texture was deposited by a laser system based on a fiber laser. An increase in the power of laser radiation is found to lead to a decrease in the SCA measured on the first day after texturing. Change of dispersion and polar surface energy components of textured substrates is determined. Under the influence of the environment, the surface properties of AMG-6 change with time. SCA increased and reached stable state on the twentieth day after texturing.
