PDR is short for Paintless Dent Removal – the fine art of removing dents, dings, creases, hail damage and even larger dents from a car or vehicle, without the need for repainting or refinishing as in using traditional (Body shop repairs).
Dentmaster Wales PDR Paintless Dent Removal Process
Paintless Dent Repair works by utilising the memory of your vehicle’s metal or aluminium along with highly skilled metal working techniques. By using specialized hand tools our highly trained PDR technicians meticulously manipulate your dent to permanently remove it. This restores the dented panel to its original shape.
By using these techniques it doesn’t harm the original paint because today’s modern car paints and thinner gauge metal are very flexible. Especially as these Paintless Dent Removal techniques work from behind the damage so there’s no sanding, painting or body fillers involved.
During the 1980’s paintless dent removal was expanding to the United States, but PDR was very limited to the size of dents that could actually be removed. During the 1990’s PDR technicians in the dent removal industry (especially in the UK) began to push the art of Dent Removal to new heights and capabilities, moving from small door dings and dents to hail damage to many larger dents.
Although every dent is different so please be aware we usually need to either asses your dent or you will need to forward a photo of the damage.
Hopefully the above answers the question - What is PDR
