The location of the wetting transition in symmetric polymer blends is calculated as a function of the degree of incompatibility and the difference in surface energy between the pure components, using mean-field (square-gradient) theory, coupled with a lattice model for the bare surface energy. The conditions for second-order wetting are discussed.
