Super Hydrophobic Coatings

PHIL's patent pending Superhydrophobic and Superoliophobic coatings is unique to PHIL HiVol® bodies.

The design utilizes four free-floating "lifting eyes" tied into the floor structure. When the mine site is ready to remove or put on a truck body, small "manhole covers" are taken out of the lifting holes, the lifting eyes are put through the holes and then attached to the rigging.


Holes do not fatigue over time similar to lifting eyes on body sides

Zero "pull in" on the body sides

Engineered with a multiple-capacity safety rating and certified by a reputable third party

Safe alternative to traditional method

Easier and safer to rig for personnel

Saves time during installation and removal
