Panel Beaters – Paintless Dent Removal
Paintless dent removal (PDR) is one of the best techniques available to repairs dent and similar damages to the surface of a car's body with it now being the first option for many panel beaters.
To put it simply, PDR is the process of massaging and easing the dented metal surface back into its original formation with the aim being to return the car's surface back to a flawless finish. This process is far more preferable than more traditional methods as it is significantly less expensive and requires less effort on the part of the panel beaters as it leaves the existing paint intact. This due mainly to the fact that the metal doesn't have to be forced and pushed back into position, but more gently moved back into place.
When you take your car to the panel beaters there are a number of steps that are completed in order to determine whether PDR is an appropriate choice for repairing the damage including looking into the positioning of the dent, the size and how deep it is.
What this means is that a dent can be repaired if it is fairly shallow with minimal scratches and sharp edges, with the size of the dent being optimally around the size of a hand or so. Finally the positioning of the dent will play a significant factor with access to the dent being a main issue. Unlike conventional panel beating techniques that hammer a dent out of the damaged area, the part of the body doesn't have to be removed from the rest of the car, meaning it takes less time and will not damage the paint finish through the hammer strikes.
The technique applied by the panel beater will vary depending on which part of the car has the dent and the available access it affords.
PDR is a specialised procedure that requires a set range of tools and techniques only available with quality panel beaters and mechanic shops. For the very best results, it takes patience, a steady hand and experience to recreate the flawless finish of the paintwork and the body of the car.
