Abstract: In this contemporary world, coating plays a vital role to improve the mechanical property of the material, complete chemistry and structure of the material need not be altered instead surface modification is more than enough to reduce the degradation of material through corrosion accumulation of the dust on the surface and the contact angle between the water and the surface is the major focus. the current article, current work gives the collective result of different types of coating like dip coating, sol-gel, spray coating, spin coating, plasma coating, chemical vapor deposition, and lithography in comparing all the methods of coating with spin coating it can convert the surface into a superhydrophobic surface with more contact angle of 165° with the coating microns of 10 to 30 micron, and dip-coating having a contact angle 160° with coating 3 microns, the sol-gel coating having contact angle 115°-165° with coating 20 microns, spray coating having contact angle 164° with coating 7 microns, plasma coating having contact angle 144° with coating 25 microns, chemical vapor deposition having contact angle 159.3°with 20 microns, lithography coating has a contact angle of 160° with coating 33 microns, whereas other coating techniques like dip, spray, plasma coating, chemical vapor deposition, and lithography have constraints with contact angle respectively.
