Hydrophobic Steel Liners by Crodon

Sticky Material isn't fun and carryback costs mines millions of dollars a year in lost opportunity. To counter this, PHIL uses a unique version of hydrophobic steel strategically in our HiVol® bodies called Crodon.

Because material tends to start in the corners, we often line the front slope to body side corner gussets with Crodon and then selectively in other locations depending on the severity of carryback found at that specific mine.
