Corrosion resistance

I was just e-mailed this question about metal polishing and thought someone
might have some answers:

The base polishing product used by metal polishers (for aluminum mag wheels)
is made up of animal fat and other grease related material. This makes for a
great surface but there is not a corrosion resistant coating that will stick
to the polished surface. (The grease is embedded in pores).

The polish is necessary (consumer demand) for looks. The corrosion
resistance is needed because of the new road de-icing materials. Any ideas
or experience with a substitute for grease-based polishes? Does anyone have
experience with soy oil?

The companies have tried ENVIROCOAT. It will stick to unpolished or bare
metal and make for a great corrosion resistance surface, but will not work
on the polished aluminum.

Can anyone offer direction? Thanks
