Paintless Dent Repair, or PDR, is an auto body industry recognized dent removal process. It involves the removal of hail dents and other types of damage on exterior surface panels without disturbing a vehicle’s finish.
How Paintless Dent Repair Works
In the majority of cases, the paintless dent repair procedure involves using specialized tools for applying pressure to the backsides of panels to remove surface indentations.
A second paintless dent repair technique involves bonding a “tab” or another device to the exterior of a panel. When the “tab” is affixed, the dent is then pulled out from the outside of the panel.
Both of these techniques are referred to as paintless dent repair because the technician restores the panel appearance, eliminating the need for the panel’s surface to be refinished.
When Paintless Dent Repair Is Used
The real value of the paintless dent repair process is it eliminates the need for refinishing if the outer finish of the panel, such as the clear coat and paint, has not been harmed. Not only is it a quicker repair, it is also much less expensive. This is why it is a great technique to be used in repairing multiple small dents as with hail damage.
A key for using the primary paintless dent repair technique is a technician should be able to gain access to the backside of a dent. On occasion, to be able to offer paintless dent repair, a technician will drill holes for access. When complete with the dent removal process, the holes are treated with a rust inhibitor and filled with a plug to guard against moisture entering the inside of panels on which work was performed.
