While the long-range forces between substrate and adsorbate are responsible for the critical transition, which occurs at the temperature at which the Hamaker constant changes sign, it is primarily the short-range components of the forces that bring about the first-order transition.

This behavior follows from the leading terms of the tails of the long-range forces between substrate and adsorbate .
Transition temperatures and contact angles in the sequential-wetting scenario of n-alkanes on (salt) water
As mentioned above, the true wetting transition to complete wetting is continuous and brought about by long-range forces between substrate and adsorbate, which change their nature from inhibiting complete wetting to supporting it at this temperature, Tw ,c .
