German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Metallurgy / Casting / Wire
German term or phrase:fusselfrei
I'm translating a patent about lubricants for cold-forming metals. In a paragraph about wire-drawing, "gleichmäßige schöne fusselfreie metallische Oberflächen" are obtained.
"Fusselfrei" normally means 'lint-free', but since I can't see how there would be any lint here anyway, I suspect there's a better translation.
