Oxisolv on brakes?

I've seen oodles of posts about sanding and painting brakes to clean up and prevent rust but haven't seen anyone discuss using Eastwood's rust removal products like Oxisolv. There's posts on other car forums about this product cleaning up rust and leaving a zinc coating behind to prevent further rusting. Anyone here ever use it?

Interesting. That might be something to try. I am curious about Eastwood's product simply because it sounds as though painting may not be necessary afterwards.

If I used EvapoRust on rotors and then painted the edges and vanes, does that affect heat transfer negatively? I don't want to compromise a set of high-performance rotors for aesthetics.
