English term or phrase: Not wet by
Hello everyone!
Here is the context:

Borum Nitride is inorganic, inert and **not wet by** most molten metals, performing well in molten metal processes.

I assume it means that this material can not "absorve" (or be affected by) molten metals.
Please advise.
Thank you all.

Boron nitride is a heat- and chemically resistant refractory compound of boron and nitrogen with the chemical formula BN. It exists in various crystalline forms that are isoelectronic to a similarly structured carbon lattice. The hexagonal form corresponding to graphite is the most stable and soft among BN polymorphs, and is therefore used as a lubricant and an additive to cosmetic products. The cubic (sphalerite structure) variety analogous to diamond is called c-BN; it is softer than diamond, but its thermal and chemical stability is superior. The rare wurtzite BN modification is similar to lonsdaleite and may even be harder than the cubic form.
