Tim, Welcome to the forum. I am sure you find many friendly people with all levels of experience, and many willing to share.
As Mike and Scrollwolf have suggested, I too thought heat. I think specifically the problem is the bit itself. Would it be possible to change bits after every 5 cuts? You have not given many details, but if 5 cuts is one workpiece, change bits for each work piece. It will add to the time, but it will reduce the fraying of the paper backing.

"Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."
