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.
There are basically two ways to perform paintless dent repairs: from the inside (pushing the dents out), or from the outside (pulling them out). Whichever method they choose, the technicians will have to manipulate the metal at the right height and in the precise locations. To repair dents and dings from the inside, they'll utilize metal rods and body picks, while fixing creases from the outside requires glue and specially designed tabs. The exact method is greatly influenced by the location of the damage, the size and the extent to which the paint has been stretched. In many cases, even though paintless dent repair is not a viable solution to fix the damage, it can still be used before repainting, as a way to reduce or eliminate the use of body filler.
