CHARLESTON, S.C. — AguaSeal Waterproofing Systems LLC has announced a new coating solution for commercial building structures to stop condensation at its source.

The NoZwet Anti-Condensation product is an environmentally friendly, water-based coating that inhibits condensation accumulation and ammonia corrosion on ceilings, uninsulated roofs, and a wide range of other surfaces.

NoZwet is applied to a building's interior ceiling using a textured coating hopper spray system. The coating provides a warmer surface, making it difficult for condensation to form.

If condensation were to form, a NoZwet surface would absorb the water at a rate of 2 pints per 10 square feet. NoZwet’s textured surface accelerates the drying rate by at least 15-20 times that of an uncoated surface. Given sufficient airflow, the accumulated condensation is released as humidity back into the atmosphere.

AguaSeal said in a release that potential benefits of using NoZwet include: safer working environments for employees; less potential for OSHA citations, building closures, insurance claims and lawsuits due to hazardous water and mold accumulation; and prolonged roof life due to the prevention of corrosion and water damage.
