Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of Army materials is a continuing concern. It is important that any corrosion
problems with the forklift be reported so that the problem can be corrected and improvements can be made to prevent the
problem in the future.
While corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals, corrosion can also include deterioration of other materials, such
as rubber and plastic. Unusual cracking, softening, swilling, 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

The form should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 738-750.
