CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL
Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important that any corrosion
problem with the HRV be reported so that improvements can be made to prevent the problem in the future. While cor-
rosion 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 SF 368, (Product Quality Deficiency Report). Use of keywords
such as corrosion, rust, deterioration, or cracking will ensure that the information is identified as a CPC problem.
SF 368 should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 738--750.
