Paintless Dent Repair (PDR), also known as paintless damage removal, describes a method of eliminating small dents from the body of an automobile. A vast array of damages can be fixed utilizing Paintless Dent Repair as long as the paint surface is intact. Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) may be used on both aluminum and also steel panels.

One of the most common useful usage for Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is the fixing of hailstorm damage, door dings, minor creases, huge damages and also bodylines damage. 

The method can also be utilized to prepare a damaged panel for repainting by minimizing the use of body filler. This technique is currently known as “push to paint” or “push to prep”.

Restricting factors for an effective repair making use of Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) consist of the flexibility of the paint (most of today's refined automotive paint surfaces allow for successful PDR) and also the extent to which the metal has been extended by the damages, which depends upon the thickness of the metal, the curvature or flatness where the damages took place and also the intensity of the impact. Normally talking, the shallower the damage, the higher the possibility of paintless dent repair being a suitable option. Also damages a number of inches in size can be repaired by this technique as long as the steel and paint are not stretched. Most seasoned technicians can repair a shallow large dent or crease to an appropriate degree, but extremely sharp damages and also folds might not be suitable for Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)..

The most common PDR techniques utilize metal rods and body picks to push out the dents from the underside of the body panel. Glue and specially designed tabs may be used to pull out the dents from the outside of the panel. Fine tuning the repair often involves tapping down the repair to remove small high spots. Quality technicians can mix high places to match the appearance of the paint called orange peel. Pushing also hard can develop high places that trigger the clear layer as well as paint to split or divide. Experienced professionals can prevent breaking or splitting with the use of warmth, although a re-painted surface area has a greater likelihood of breaking. Moreover, it is unwise to "adhesive pull" a painted panel, because you run the risk of also pulling non manufacturing facility paint off. When damage is so excellent that body filler is necessary, a Paintless Dent Repair specialist might "push to paint", solving the majority of the damages prior to minor filling, sanding, as well as painting, thereby conserving time and price.

Dent Pro Process

The Dent Pro process of paintless dent repair requires a technician to adjust exact places of metal to the proper height, which can only be observed by the use of a Paintless Dent Repair analysis tool such as a paintless dent repair light. Fluorescent or LED illumination, or sometimes a reflection board, may be used to envision the contortion of the dent as well as to aid the specialist in locating the tip of the device being utilized to push the steel. Without a reflection from a light source or board to review the dent, the fine information of the procedure might not be suitable for the technician.
