PAINTLESS DENT REPAIR
- What Is PDR?
Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is an industry recognized repair process that involves the removal of hail dents or their types of damage for a vehicle’s exterior surface panels without disturbing the finish.
- How Does It Work?
This process mostly involves using specialized tools to apply pressure to the backside of the panel to remove surface imperfections. Damage may also be repaired by bonding a ‘tab’ or other device to the exterior of the panel and pulling the dent from the topside. The technician is able to restore panel appearance, thus eliminating the need for refinishing the panel’s surface area.
- When Can It Be Used?
The PDR process is often used to repair hail damage or other similar dents that occur when an outer panel strikes (or is struck by) an object that has not compromised the finish of the panel. Since the outer finish of the panel has not been disturbed, it eliminates steps in the refinishing process and may allow for more timely repairs.
The ability to repair vehicles using PDR requires that the technician be able to access the backside of a dent. Some repairers drill holes for access. Reynolds does not recommend PDR if drilling is necessary.
