Paintless dent repair is designed to stretch the metal back to it’s original shape, allowing technicians to remove dings, dents and creases without the need to apply paint over the vehicle’s factory paint job.
In most cases, this procedure involves the use of specialized tools which apply pressure to the backside of the vehicle’s panel to remove surface imperfections. Damage may also be repaired by bonding a “tab” or other device to the exterior of the panel and pulling the dent from the topside. By using either of these techniques, the technician is able to restore panel appearance, thus eliminating the need for refinishing the panel’s surface area.
Since paintless dent repair does not use traditional auto body methods like sanding, body fillers, or painting, the process is much faster than conventional repairs.
