    Results of corrosion tests of titanium in the initial state and after treatment using pulsed magnetic field are presented. It is shown that samples after treatment have better corrosion resistance due to the formation of denser and finer corrosion products with better adhesion to the substrate. Samples after treatment have more homogeneous microstructure due to a substantial increase of dislocations which are uniformly distributed. Mechanisms of dislocation multiplication and a model explaining the effect of the treatment on the corrosion are discussed.
