CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
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 items.
While corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals, it can also include deterio-
ration of other materials, such as rubber and plastic. Unusual cracking, softening, swell-
ing, or breaking of these materials may be a corrosion problem.
If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using SF Form 368 (Product Qual-
ity Deficiency Report). Use of key words such as corrosion, rust, deterioration, or
cracking will ensure that the information is identified as a CPC problem. The form
should be submitted to the address specified in DA Pam 738-750.
