Corrosion control keeps the effects of electrochemical or chemical attack on materials by the environment to a minimum. The program includes:
2.1 Corrosion control by design and materials selection.
2.2. Use of cathodic protection to eliminate electrochemical reactions (corrosion).
2.3. Use of industrial water treatment to reduce corrosion, scale-forming deposits, and biological growths in heating and cooling systems.
2.4. Use of protective coatings to reduce atmospheric corrosion or cathodic protection current requirements.
2.5. Analysis of logs and records for failure prediction and selection of corrective actions.
2.6. Incorporation of corrective actions in repair and construction projects when corrosion, scale, or material deterioration occur due to materials, design, construction, operation, or the environment.
This instruction implements AFPD 32-10, Installations and Facilities. It provides responsibilities and general requirements for the corrosion control program at major commands and bases. It applies to personnel involved in design, construction, acquisition, operations, and maintenance of real property assets and installed equipment at installations and facilities. It implements Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Transportation, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations, and guidelines pertaining to corrosion control activities. It follows selected industry standards published by NACE International (formerly National Association of Corrosion Engineers). Paragraphs not applicable to the Air National Guard contain parenthetical phrases, usually at the end of the paragraph. Send comments and suggested improvements on AF Form 847, Recommendation for Change of Publication, through major commands to HQ AFCESA/CESM, 139 Barnes Drive, Suite 1, Tyndall AFB FL 32403-5319. AFI 21-105, Aerospace Equipment Structural Maintenance, explains the corrosion control program for aerospace and electronic systems.
