rGO is widely used in aerospace, petrochemical, marine and other fields because of its high conductivity, high thermal conductivity, high specific surface area, high light transmittance and excellent mechanical properties. At the same time, due to its good hydrophobicity, it is not only easier to synthesize superhydrophobic materials, but also improve the mechanical stability and electrothermal properties of the composites, prolong the service life and ensure the service effect. In this paper, a modified Hummer method was constructed to prepare a superhydrophobic reduced graphene oxide (rGO) composite material. The synthesized rGO material was characterized by using an X-ray powder diffractometer, and the results proved the successful preparation of rGO. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) was used to test and analyze the prepared rGO composite material to further verify the successful preparation of superhydrophobic rGO. Finally, the influence of the amount of rGO on the wettability of the material was explored, and it was concluded that when the amount of rGO added was 7.5 mg/mL, the hydrophobic performance was the best.
