The availability, commercial viability and inherent hydrophobic characteristics of waxes have attracted substantial research attention for engineering advanced superhydrophobic coatings in several applications, including anti-corrosion, paper, textile, food and wood industries and oil separation. This chapter provides a concise account of wax-based artificial superhydrophobic coatings and their various types and applications. Wax-incorporated composite coatings of ceramic nanomaterials, carbon nanostructures and polymers are highlighted.
