Before and After:  Glass and Iron Filled Thermoset Plastic

Before and After: Glass and Iron Filled Thermoset Plastic

Plastic parts are notoriously difficult o run in a tumbling process. For this part the goal was to remove the mold parting line and impart a matte finish for a second post process. We chose a fast cutting, large size ceramic media in order to effectively abrade the plastic. The tumbling process has removed the raised parting line quite effectively in a short period of time. This result is seen on all parts both glass and iron filled.
