Removing a dent from a car is not only a matter of aesthetics. Bumps, dents, and scratches on the body of a car significantly decrease its market value and pose a risk that can lead to rust or corrosion problems of the sheet metal in the medium and long term.
It is very unwise not to repair dents or scratches on the car, whether they are caused by hail or accidental bumps in parking lots or any other factor.
To remove dents from a car quickly, economically, and with guarantees, it is necessary to have qualified professionals repair bodywork with the tools and the appropriate material means to deliver a vehicle free of dents in the fastest time and with the lowest cost.
There are plenty of body shops that can provide solutions to individuals and automotive companies (car manufacturers, dealers, rental fleets, etc.) in the quick repair of the bodywork of their cars, using the most appropriate techniques to remove the dents from the vehicle.
Paintless Dent Repair or PDR (Paintless Dent Repair)
Only if the mishap suffered by the vehicle has not damaged the paint of the bodywork is it possible to resort to the PDR (Paintless dent repair) techniques. This technique is simple, and you can repair the dents without the need of a specialist.
The advantages of Paintless dent repair are obvious:
- A drastic reduction in repair times
- An intervention on the car that is hardly invasive and does not alter the original paintwork,
- The unbeatable final result eliminates the dent from the car and restores the car to its pre-dent appearance, and keeps the manufacturer’s warranty intact.
What techniques are used to remove dents without painting:
Paintless Dent Repair encompasses three different ways of acting on the damaged bodywork to remove dents from the car.
The best-known way to fix dents is using rods, special tools of different shapes, lengths, and degrees of rigidity. Most technicians work from the inside of the sheet metal, carefully applying the right pressure to make the dent disappear.
On the other hand, hot-melt adhesives are used from the outside when the specific case does not recommend or prevents handling with rods. They also leave no visible trace on the vehicle’s sheet metal when removing dents.
Finally, magnetic induction is the ideal procedure for removing dents when the bodywork is weakened and needs to be restored to its original looks.
As already mentioned, all three procedures exclude the application of fillers or new paint on the affected panel, so once the dent is removed, there is no detectable trace of the mishap.
When neither the action of the rods nor the use of the other two options for repairing the dents without repainting is possible, a professional will put their experience and craftsmanship at the service of the Spot Repair technique to offer the best possible solution in each case.
By removing the dents, the car will regain its value, maintain the bodywork’s impeccable integrity, and be protected against possible risks resulting from the damage.
