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. Corrosion 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 excessive heat or light. Damage from these processes will appear as cracking, softening, swelling, and/or
breaking. SF Form 368 (PQDR) should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 750-8, Functional Users
Manual for the Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS).
