The corrosion resistance of bulk metals is improved by implanting a corrosion-resistant species into the surface of the bulk metal in a layer beginning at the surface and extending to a depth of at least about 50 angstroms. An amount of corrosion-resistant species is deposited so that the oxide layer that forms on the corrosion-resistant species implanted bulk metal is composed of at least about three percent of the oxide of the corrosion-resistant species.
