CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of Army material is a continuing concern. It is important that any corro-
sion 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 speciically 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. Degra-
dation is caused by thermal (heat), oxidation (oxygen), solvation (solvents), or photolytic (light, typically ultravi-
olet (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 368 (PQDR) should be submitted to the address
speciied in DA PAM 750-8, TAMMS Users Manual.
