This work discusses the influence of modification of brass surfaces using laser equipment on wettability properties; wetting and roll-off angles on modified surfaces were determined and analyzed as a function of laser radiation parameters and atomic composition. The most energy efficient hydrophobic surfaces characterized by the wetting angle of 149° and the roll-off angle of 3°, as well as the wetting angle of 147° and the roll-off angle of 2°, were obtained upon modification of brass surface at laser power of 15 W and 20 W, respectively, and beam speed of 100 mm/s, forming relief in the form of equidistant by 100 ?m lines.
