Abstract
The purpose of this report was to provide a critical review of recent developments in corrosion prevention programs for U.S. Army vehicles and to identify related issues from a Canadian perspective. It was prompted by awareness of the rising costs of applying a corrosion preventive compound (CPC) to Canadian Army vehicles. The review was mostly based on the presentations at the latest U.S. Tri-Service Corrosion Conference (November 2005) and the U.S. Army Corrosion Summit (February 2006), which include the recent development of U.S. Army corrosion program and research activities on new coating materials and application techniques, testing coating techniques, corrosion preventive compounds, and corrosion sensors. A comprehensive corrosion control program was also recommended in the report to better mitigate the corrosion cost and to improve the readiness and availability, and to increase the service life of the Canadian Army vehicles.
