In this paper, we present an ultra-fast, simple and cost-effective way-the direct peeling method (DPM)-to produce nanohairs with high aspect ratio on fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) films within 30 s. The FEP films with nanohair structures afford impressive demonstrations of superhydrophobicity and self-cleaning effect; the characteristics described above along with the flexibility of FEP may prove useful for solar cells and curved components in the field of biological and technological applications.
