1-3. CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
Corrosion Preventive 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 problems can be corrected and improvements can be made to prevent
problems in the 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 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.
Use of key words such as corrosion rust, deterioration, or a 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.
1-4. DESTRUCTION OF ARMY MATERIEL TO PREVENT ENEMY USE
Procedures for destruction of Army materiel to prevent enemy use can be found in TM 750-244-6.
