PDR Techniques

If your vehicle has undergone minor damage that can be repaired by the paintless dent repair process, it is important to choose a reputable collision repair shop that understands PDR techniques and tools.


PDR techniques involve pushing the dent out with as few pushes as possible by lining up all the low spots in the dent with a similar corresponding tool shape.

If you are repairing automotive panel creases with PDR techniques, it is important not to make several pushes and releases while repairing the crease. This PDR technique can result in the dreaded stitch effect, which makes more work for the collision repair technician when connecting the dots and may provide less than desirable results.

When working with hard to tackle large dents or complex dent, the PDR technique is a bit different. Pushing major or minor lows out with wide pushes and slapping the highs or crowns with wide footprint strikes seems to go naturally with complex dents. By combining these PDR techniques with pushing in the same direction of the lows the paintless dent repair results can be extremely effective.
