13 MATERIALS PERFORMANCE: VOL. 57, NO. 9 SEPTEMBER 2018 CONDENSATION AND CORROSION PROTECTION FOR WATER AND WASTEWATER SURFACES Tnemec's thermal insulating coating, Aerolon ® , helps reduce the formation of condensation by protecting cool metal substrates from warm, moist air. This coating is ideal for areas such as processing equipment, pipe galleries, and inside elevated tank columns and pedestals (dry) where frequent condensation is a safety and/or corrosion concern. When applied as a complete system with corrosion-resistant primer and durable topcoat, Aerolon can help reduce the frequency and severity of condensation, prevent problems associated with corrosion under insulation (CUI) and even offer a personnel protection barrier from hot surface temperatures.
