PDR stands for Paintless Dent Repair, also known as Paintless Dent Removal. It is part of Dentology, a branch of auto body repairs that handles the elimination of minor pressure blemishes to metal. This technique requires a qualified, experienced technician to manipulate certain locations of the metal to the right height in order to be able to either push or pull out minor dents or dings. In layman terms, paintless dent removal is the repairing of minor vehicle body damage without the use of body filler and without having to repaint. Therefore, the technique is not only faster (usually taking between 2 and 3 days), but also more affordable. The location of the damage, the size, and the damage extent are all factors that determine the feasibility of PDR as a repair method.
Just as the location and size of the damage determine whether or not PDR is a solution for your car, they also determine how the process works. Some dents or creases require technicians to push out the dents from the metal panel, while other types may require the use of specially designed tabs to pull out the dents from the outside. In all cases though, the technicians are required to manipulate the metal in precise locations, using a PDR reading instrument called paintless dent repair light. It is important for the technician to be able to visualize the deformation of the dent, in order to be able to locate the tip of the tool. As this method of repair is intrinsically manual, it is equally important to have highly experienced and skilled technicians working on your vehicle.
