The paper presents a modified model of the phenomenon of droplet’s spreading on a surface, in presence of a thin liquid microfilm. The presence of the thin microfilm affects the size of maximal droplet’s spreading area. Presented model allows to calculate the maximal droplet’s spreading radius, if parameters of the thin liquid film, as well as the macroscopic static Young angle are known.
