CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
CPC of Army material 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. Cor-
rosion specifically occurs with metals. It is an electrochemical process that causes the degradation of metals. It
is commonly caused by exposure to moisture, acids, bases or salts. An example is the rusting of iron. Corrosion
damage in metals can be seen, depending on the metal, as tarnishing, pitting, fogging, surface residue and/or
cracking. Plastics, composites and rubbers can also degrade. Degradation is caused by thermal (heat), oxidation
(oxygen), salvation (solvents) or photolytic (light, typically UV) processes. The most common exposures are ex-
cessive heat or light. Damage from these processes will appear as cracking, softening, swelling and/or breaking.
SF 368, PQDR should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 750-8, The Army Maintenance Manage-
ment System (TAMMS) Users Manual.
