Experiments have demonstrated the possibility of suppressing the coalescence of two bodies of the same liquid or the wetting of a solid by a normally wetting liquid using thermocapillary convection to drive thin films of lubricating, surrounding gas. Several aspects regarding coalescence, wetting and their suppression are discussed here, such as: i) the minimum gas pressure necessary to sustain noncoalescence under a given applied load, ii) the load capable of being supported by the film for a given relative displacement of the two surfaces, and iii) interstitial film evolution following rupture due to an excessive load.
