CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL.
Corrosion Prevention and Control (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 the future items.
While corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals, it can also include deterioration of other material,
such as rubber or plastic. Unusual cracking, softening, swelling, or breaking 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 (PQDR). Use of keywords such as "corrosion", "rust", "deterioration", or "cracking" will ensure that the information
is identified as a CPC problem.
