New product to Opie Oils, Bilt Hamber Korrosol embedded metal remover

Opie Oils Product Review, Bilt Hamber Korrosol – Staff Test

Firstly, most of you won’t actually know what this stuff is. We’ve got to be honest, we didn’t until it landed in our warehouse. The simple truth is, Bilt Hamber Korrosol (1 Litre Trigger Spray) could work wonders for increasing the life span of your vehicle’s paintwork. Why? Because it’s designed to remove embedded metal particles in your paint. These metal flakes are from loads of different sources but the most common is from brake dust. Hot airborne metals, like brake dust fragments, really burn and burrow down into your vehicles paint surface just waiting to oxidise and start a spot of rust, in fact it’s one of the most common starting points of a “rust scab”, this stuff is designed to remove it and stop it in its tracks.

How long it takes:

Not long, about 30min approx.


We recommend doing it on a day that’s not scorching hot as you don’t want this stuff to dry.

What you’ll need:

  • A bottle of Korrosol.
  • Access to a hose or power washer.
  • Wax or quick detailer for protection after you’re done.

DIY Walk Through:

Step 1

Make sure your vehicle is ultra clean. This will just make the whole process easier and help the Korrosol get to work faster. Don’t use a combined wash and wax shampoo – something like Bilt Hamber Auto Wash is ideal.
