It might have been Kevin, he gave me an unmarked bottle of the stuff and I can't remember the name.

Just had a look on the BH website and I reckon it's Surfex HD.

I think Korrosol is their fallout remover. Works fine on wheels.

Auto Wheel is their PH balanced wheel version.

Was thinking more for the alloy arms and not wheels.

What alloy parts are you actually cleaning as this will determine what to use.

Solution of hydrogen fluoride (HF) in water
Hydrofluoric acid is a solution of hydrogen fluoride (HF) in water. Solutions of HF are colourless, acidic and highly corrosive . It is used to make most fluorine-containing compounds; examples include the commonly used pharmaceutical antidepressant medication fluoxetine (Prozac) and the material PTFE (Teflon).
Appearance: Colorless liquid
Chemical formula: HF (aq)
Density: 1.15 g/mL (for 48% soln.)
EC Number: 231-634-8

Used for etching Alloy Wheels removal of brake dust etc etc
But........... wear gloves as it dont stop burning through skin and even bone when used neat!!!

Hydrofluoric acid (HF) is a liquid (or gas) which is the most corrosive acid known when in concentrated form. Concentrated HF (70%) will fume on contact with air and eat away Skin and Bone

Most detailing products will not remove the corrosion from the rear arms. Bilt Hamber surfex and korrosol will remove the surface detritus but that’s about it. Only way I can think of is to take them off and have them media blasted.
