Corrosion is a ubiquitous and thorny issue of academic and engineering fields, undermining the structural performance and causing massive economic loss and catastrophic safety accidents. Inspired from nature, the artificial construction of lotus-like superhydrophobic surfaces provide a promising solution. Herein, a facile and cost-effective strategy combining surface etching with hydrophobic agent chemisorption was employed to transform intrinsic hydrophilicity of 5083 aluminum alloy into water-repellent superhydrophobicity. The as-fabricated superhydrophobic surface exhibits extremely low surface adhesivity, excellent NaCl-particle self-propelling, self-cleaning ability, corrosion-resisting and long-term stability.
