Superhydrophobic coating is considered a practical method to endow functional characteristics to the surface of aluminium, titanium and their alloys, especially for anti-corrosion, self-cleaning, anti-icing and drag-reduction properties. However, fundamental challenges to the practical application of superhydrophobic coatings are attributed to the lack of mechanical robustness of the micro/nanoscale architecture and surface chemical durability. In this chapter, various fabrication approaches for developing superhydrophobic coatings on Al/Ti and their alloys and durability issues are reviewed. Finally, the challenges to improving the durability of superhydrophobic coatings on Al/Ti and their alloys are summarized, and their future development directions are considered.
