We make some milled parts out of polypropylene. One of the issues we're having on the latest batch is a lot of fuzzy residue left behind on the pocket walls. Cleaning up the walls when we deburr is taking a lot of time.
- We are using new, sharp tools, mostly with an aluminum grind.
- The fuzzy residue is attached to the wall, you can't wipe it off, but need to use a deburring tool
- I think the problem is worse with this batch of material than previous batches.
- Our finish pass is .015", 5000rpm, 40ipm with a 3/8" 3-flute YG-1 Alupower HPC endmill
