Placo1 wants to "eliminate corrosion by brake dust". Plating won't help. Brake dust itself doesn't cause corrosion any more than many other dusts. In the presence of water it may become corrosive. Brake dust will occur with any rotor. Any rotor that is plated will have the plating removed by braking.

Your best bet is to clean the rotors and paint the non-active surfaces with a good temperature-resistant paint. I sometimes do that for the rotors and calipers on my daily drivers. It keeps the corrosion down.
