CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL.
Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important that any corrosion problems
with this item be reported so that the problem can be corrected and improvements can be made to prevent the problem in future
While corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals, it can also include deterioration of other materials, such as rub-
ber and plastic. Unusual cracking, softening, swelling, or braking of these materials may be a corrosion problem.
If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using Standard Form 368, Product Quality Deficiency Report. Use of
keywords such as corrosion, rust, deterioration, or cracking will ensure that the information is identified as a CPC
The form should be submitted to the address specified in DA Pam 738-750.
