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.
Corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals or galvanic corrosion which produces a white powder. The
category of corrosion also includes deterioration of other materials, such as rubber and plastic. Unusual cracking,
softening, swelling or breaking of the materials may be a corrosion problem.
If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using an SF 368, Product Quality 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.
