What is Paintless dent Removal? (PDR)
Working from behind the dent, technicians use specially designed tools to massage the metal back to its original position. Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is the process of removing dents, dings, and creases from vehicles without affecting the original paint finish. PDR is much quicker and less expensive than traditional body shop repairs.
Is Paintless Dent Removal new Technology?
No, PDR has been around for as long as cars have been made. It can be traced back to the early 40’s in the Mercedes plants. From there it traveled to Argentina. In the US there have been PDR companies since the early 80’s. What you see on TV is not reality. PDR Technicians don’t use suction cups, dry ice or glue pullers. There is no smoke and mirrors; it is specially trained technicians working painstakingly on massaging the metal from behind the dent.
How long does it take?
Most repairs can be done in under an hour.
