The invention proposes corrosion inhibition of thermally insulated metallic hardware that has moisture condensation on it when its temperature goes below the dew point. Corrosion inhibition is achieved by coating the inner suface of the insulation, that comes in contact with the metallic hardware, with a corrosion inhibitor. The corrosion inhibitor may be simply brushed on the insulation surface and then air dried.
