What is stickiness?

Stickiness is the characteristic of things that makes them difficult to remove from surfaces. It is usually measured in terms of a substance's ability to resist sliding off a surface. Hydrophobic and hydrophilic molecules are generally classified as being sticky.

The molecules that make up a substance's surface can affect its stickiness. The more hydrophobic a molecule is, the more sticky it is. Conversely, the more hydrophilic a molecule is, the less sticky it is.

Mixtures of sticky and nonsticky molecules can also create a sticky surface.
