Automotive Brushes

Tanis Brush provides a variety of twisted, disc and rotary brushes for surface conditioning and deburring applications within the automotive industries. Working closely with engine parts and other automotive component manufacturers, we design brushes that meet the rigorous needs of both internal and external parts finishing.

Our abrasive product line works to round sharp edges and condition surfaces within engine cylinders, manifolds and hydraulic components with uniform filament distribution, providing a smooth, consistent finish. Brush conditioning works to eliminate any potential loose metal and remove flakes that can contaminate engine oil or oil filters and affect normal engine operation. Our abrasive nylon brushes offer significant benefits in increasing throughput and enhanced cutting action. Our engineering staff will work with machinery manufacturers to specifications including filament type, grit, density, diameter, and length.

For sealing applications, our engineers will work to design a specific strip brush for seating, console, window and door applications.

We work with machine manufacturers and end users to provide replacement parts and repairs. Our hand-sewn brush refurbishment services provide a cost-effective alternative to replacements.
