CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC) - Continued
PITTING: This can result from conditions similar to those for crevice corrosion. Pits can develop on various
materials due to their composition. Rifle boxes are big victims of pitting.
EROSION: Results when a moving fluid (liquid or gas) flows across a metal surface, particularly when solid
particles are present in the fluid. Corrosion actually occurs on the surface of the metal, but the moving fluid
washes away the corrosion and exposes a new metal surface, which also corrodes.
FRETTING: Occurs as a result of small, repetitive movements (e.g., vibration) between two surfaces in contact
with each other. It s usually identified by a black powder corrosion product or pits on the surface.
GALVANIC: Occurs when two different types of metal come in contact with each other, like steel bolts on
aluminum, for example. This is a common problem on aircraft because of their mix of metals.
STRESS: Term used to describe corrosion cracking and corrosion fatigue.
Where an item is not ready/available due to one of these forms of corrosion, it shall be recorded as a corrosion
failure in the inspection record and the appropriate code (170) for corrosion shall be used when requesting/
SF Form 368, Product Quality Deficiency Report should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 750-8,
