REPORTING EQUIPMENT IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS (EIR)
If your D6K Dozer needs improvement, let us know. Send us an EIR. You, the user, are the only one who can tell
us what you don't like about your equipment. Let us know why you do not like the design or performance. If you
have Internet access, the easiest way to report problems or suggestions is to follow the instructions and links below.
All non-Aviation/Missile Warranty EIRs and PQDRs must be submitted through the Web Product Quality Deficiency
Reporting (PQDR) site. The Web PQDR site is: http://www.nslcptsmh.csd.disa.mil/webpqdr/webpqdr.htm. New
accounts can be established at the following address: http://www.nslcptsmh.csd.disa.mil/accessforms/uarform.htm.
You may also submit your information using an SF 368 (Product Quality Deficiency Report). You can send your
SF 368 using e-mail, or fax using the addresses/fax numbers, specified in DA PAM 750-8, The Army Maintenance

CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
CPC of Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important that any corrosion 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 specifically 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
Plastics, composites, and rubbers can also degrade. Degradation is caused by thermal energy (heat), oxidation
(oxygen), solvation (solvents), or photolytic (light, typically UV) processes. The most common exposures are
excessive heat or light. Damage from these processes will appear as cracking, softening, swelling, and/or
SF Form 368, Product Quality Deficiency Report, should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM
750-8, TAMMS Users Manual.
OZONE DEPLETING SUBSTANCES (ODS)
There are no ozone depleting substances contained on the machine or used during machine maintenance.
DESTRUCTION OF ARMY MATERIEL TO PREVENT ENEMY USE
