Paintless dent removal (or paintless dent repair) was invented in the 1930s but became popular in the United States in and around the early 1980s.
Paintless dent removal is a relatively new method used for the removal of minor dents and dings, auto hail damage, and parking lot door dings. PDR saves time and money over the traditional auto body repair. The paintless dent removal takes only a few hours compared to days with panel beating, Bondo filling, sanding, and spray painting.
Paintless dent removal is also the environmentally-conscious method for removing automobile dents and dings.
Paintless Dent Removal Origins
Paintless dent removal originated during the 60’s by a Mercedes employee named Oskar Flaig; he first showcased the technique at the International Motor Sports Show in New York City, NY. He was looking for a quick way to fix minor dents and dings prior to large car shows without a lot of time/daylight to paint the vehicle – as they needed to look pristine in a short amount of time, paintless dent repair was the clear winner.
The widely practiced method of panel beating and then repainting seemed to be overly time-consuming, expensive and ultimately ineffectual, especially in contrast to paintless dent removal. This new wave of dealing with car dents and dings became the best method of repairing minor surface damage to vehicles.
How Does Paintless Dent Removal Work?
Highly-trained PDR technicians use a series of high carbon steel rods and interchangeable tips to gently push or massage dents from the underside of the vehicle’s panel. If the dent is not accessible from behind the panel, the PDR tech will use a “dent pulling” tool that sits on either side of the dent and uses a slight propelling/lifting motion to pull the dent from the surface.
Because paintless dent repair does not require any drilling or sanding, the factory paint finish is preserved therefore keeping it fully-intact!
