Sorry, I can only list what DOESN't Work well on the pitting on Aluminum.

Technically Aluminum doesn't rust, it oxidizes. Only ferric metals (metals which contain iron, and are typically magnetic) will rust. Once the aluminum surface is fully oxidized it actually protects the aluminum from futher oxidation.
