P.D.R-PROCEDURE

About the P.D.R.-procedure

The P.D.R.-procedure (short for Paintless Dent Repair) is the repair of hail damage and dents on car-bodies.
This work is conducted with a special tool and in cold state - without damaging the original paint or varnish. The P.D.R.-procedure is an unconventional method, mostly used for bodywork damage from hailstorm. Compared to conventional methods (puttying, grinding, painting and replacement of entire parts or units), the repair costs are between 30 to 80 per cent lower in this case, the repair time is also reduced from weeks to just a few hours, while the original vehicle value is preserved. This method is also 100 % environmentally friendly.


Use of the P.D.R.-Procedure

The P.D.R-method is especially suitable for repairing deformations wherever the original paint / paint needs to be preserved or where a conventional repair simply isn't appropriate. Most often, the P.D.R.-procedure is used to repair vehicles newer than 5 years or in cases requiring the preservation the vehicle's value or original finish.

THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF DEFORMATIONS
- CAN BE REPAIRED USING THE P.D.R.-PROCEDURE
WITHOUT PAINT-DAMAGE

 
Hailstorm or falling chestnuts

Vandalism

Snow, ice or tree-branches

Minor damage




We repair damaged vehicles in just a single working day, though maintaining 100 % quality. It always depends on the extent of damage. The usual repair time is 1-2 working days. Unfortunately, the extent of damage related to vandalism or mischief is often more extensive, e.g. dents on doors and mudguards caused by kicks, buckled bonnets or roofs.  And yes - we can repair even those damages. Falling snow from building roof or branches can damage virtually any vehicle part. The most common damage-type is hailstorm damage of any kind and dents from the parking at shopping malls e.g. by reckless door opening, careless maneuvering when parking or by impact of shopping carts.



METHODS APPLIED WITH THE P.D.R.-PROCEDURE

„DENT REMOVAL FROM INSIDE“ - BUCKLING OUT

With the P.D.R.-procedure, two basic methods are used for repairs. One of them is “press-out” method. This method uses specialised tools. In this case, the dents get pushed out with levers and hooks, by which almost every part of the bodywork can be reached. Using the proper lever or hook, the unevenness is pressed into its original shape again from inside.

“DENT REMOVAL FROM OUTSIDE" - GLUE-PULLING


The other P.D.R.-method is the so-called “glue-pulling” This method is used when the damaged part of the bodywork cannot be reached with levers or hooks or if it is not possible to make the critical parts accessible from inside.

In order to “pull out a bump” - a system of glue adapters (so called “tabs”) and a slide hammer (recoil-hammer) is used. The tab gets attached to the damaged area using a special glue. After the glue has cured, the tab is pulled out using a recoil hammer.  The resulting projection is then tapped finely into its original shape with a special punch.

However, this method is slower in the end and also cannot be used for all damages (e.g. sharp bends and edges). For achieving a perfect result, the repaired surfaces get polished in with paint renewals.
