Condensation Control

Mascoat coatings insulate and protect industrial, commercial, marine and automotive substrates around the world. Our products are tested to the highest standards and are proven to protect against condensation and prevent or eliminate corrosion under insulation (CUI). When water is absorbed by conventional insulation systems, it reduces overall effectiveness because moisture conducts heat more efficiently than air. A small amount of moisture can cause a significant drop in thermal efficiency. Also, as operating temperature increases, the negative effects of moisture increase as well. Things like molten sulfur, slurry, and asphalt emulsions stored in the +200°F range will see a larger drop in thermal efficiency once moisture is added. 

Another side effect of moisture is corrosion under insulation (CUI), which has proven to be a major problem in the marine, petrochemical and chemical process industries. Due to the insulation’s ability to trap moisture and hold it against the surface, corrosion-promoting atmospheres rapidly degrade most carbon steel substrates. As this developed, there became a need for high-performance coating systems under thermal insulation.


Mascoat Marine-DTM is a composite coating exclusively designed for harsh marine environments that provides thermal and anti-condensation protection. This highly effective coating is a water-based, one-part coating comprised of air-filled particulates held in suspension by an acrylic binder. It applies like paint and is maintenance-free, providing a thermal barrier and anti-condensation capabilities for shipboard construction.

Mascoat Marine-DTM is in use on thousands of marine vessels from Alaska to Antarctica. This coating can replace or work in conjunction with most blanket and foam insulation products. A key product benefit is substantial reduction of weight which helps keep vessels within stringent marine codes and classifications. It is easy to apply to stiffeners and other tight areas without adding excess weight. The coating bonds directly to the substrate or primer, leaving no room for corrosion to take hold. Direct bonding gives the coating the ability to protect your vessel without degradation of the substrate for many years to come. By using Mascoat Marine-DTM coating system, you can rest assured that your vessel is protected and that the interior accommodations will be comfortable. Mascoat Marine-DTM also enhances sound reduction or soundproofing of vessels from airborne structural noise. The coating is capable of a 1-3 dB drop in airborne structural noise or a 28 SRC factor. 


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.


Mascoat leads the industry in high-tech, premium insulation coatings. One of our newest coatings, Mascoat Industrial-DTX,  is a epoxy formulation specially engineered for aggressive industrial environments where it reduces or completely prevents condensation, protects substrates and prevents Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI). Industrial-DTX is specifically designed to be a multi-purpose coating that solves painting and insulating issues.

Utilizing materials specially designed to combat condensation, the Mascoat research and development team created Industrial-DTX to solve the moisture problems that plague plants, refineries, mills, factories and anywhere else persistent condensation is an issue. While conventional insulation wicks moisture and breaks down when regularly exposed to water, Industrial-DTX withstands condensation, humidity and regular cleaning without adverse effects. Its durable, moisture-resistant design requires little maintenance for years to come—so you’ll save money and manpower. 

Industrial-DTX is a two-part coating installed via airless sprayer, making it ideal to use on uneven surfaces and tight spaces. After application, substrates can be quickly inspected since they remain entirely viewable.
