CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
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 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 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, Functional Users Manual
for The Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS).
