Mascoat Industrial-AC (anti-condensation) is a specially formulated version of Mascoat’s already successful and widely-used Industrial-DTI thermal insulating coating designed to combat condensation in industrial environments. Over the years, our lab has been researching special materials that would play a major role in redesigning the product to specifically attack and prevent condensation. The result is a composite, moisture-resistant insulation coating that reduces or completely eliminates condensation, provides an insulating barrier, protects personnel and equipment and prevents corrosion - all in one easy-to-apply product.
Mascoat Industrial-AC is applied via airless spray systems, reducing installation cost and time. Also, because it is applied directly to the substrate, the substrate is viewable at all times. This allows for easy maintenance and inspection without total shutdown, breakdown or downtime.
BENEFITS & FEATURES:
- Superior condensation protection
- Eliminates the possibility of corrosion under insulation
- Allows for inspection of the substrate without removal
- Fast cure times
- Low VOC product
- Easy application to irregular surfaces
Mascoat Industrial-AC is available in 5-gallon pails and can be purchased by filling out our Request More Information form. Industrial-AC comes in white and light gray colors.
The Risks of Condensation
Condensation is caused by a difference in temperature between two sides of a surface, resulting in one surface being lower than the dew point. When the temperature falls below the dew point, water vapor is released next to the surface, resulting in condensation. In some industrial applications, this is hard to overcome.
Condensation in the workplace can increase the risk of severe accidents and equipment is subjected to water that can cause corrosion as well as biological growth which can lead to serious health issues. To reduce the chance for condensation to occur, a thermal barrier such as Mascoat Industrial-AC is needed to buffer the temperature to at least 1.5°F above the dew point.
