Panel Beaters – Paintless Dent Removal

Panel Beaters - Paintless Dent Removal

Paintless dent removal (PDR) is one of the best techniques available to repair curves and similar damage to the surface of a car body and is now the first choice for many panel beaters.

Quick Repair using PDR

Simply put, PDR is the process of massaging and reducing the metal surface of the dent back into its original formation with the aim of returning the surface of the car back to its perfect results. This process is much preferred over the more traditional method because it is significantly cheaper and requires less effort on the panel shaker because it leaves the paint intact. This is mainly due to the fact that the metal does not have to be forced and pushed back into position, but is gently moved back into place.

When you take your car to the beater panel there are a number of steps that are completed to determine whether PDR is the right choice to repair the damage including looking into the dent’s position, size and how deep it is.

The dent can be repaired if it shallow enough

This means that the dent can be repaired if it is shallow enough with minimal scratches and sharp edges, with optimal dent sizes around the hand size or more. Finally, the position of the dent will play an important factor with access to the dent becoming a major problem. Unlike conventional panel beating techniques that make a hammer curve out of a damaged area, body parts do not have to be removed from other parts of the car, which means it requires less time and won’t damage the coat of paint through the hammer paddle.

The technique applied by the beater panel will vary depending on which part of the car has a dent and available access.
