Paintless Dent Repair

Paintless dent repair (PDR), sometimes known as "paintless dent removal", is a technique for removing the dents and dings from the body of a motor vehicle. Vehicle damage can occur anywhere and many times those problems can be repaired using the PDR process, however if there is a blemish or a rupture of the paint then PDR may be unsuitable.

Our Patented Process for Paintless Dent Repair

The most common methods of PDR utilize metal rods and body picks to push the dents out from the inner side of the body panel being repaired. Also, glue may be used from the outside of the panel to pull the dents out. In either case, fine-tuning of the repair often involves "tapping" down the repair to remove small high spots, making the surface flat. Paintless dent repair may be used on both aluminum and steel panels. If a technician pushes too hard when creating these high spots, the paint will split and the repair is ruined. Quality technicians can use these high spots that are barely visible to match the texture of the paint.

The technology of PDR has been around for many years. Fluorescent lighting, or in some cases a light-reflection board, is used to see the shadows created by the deformation of the dent. This is an important aspect of the repair process. Without a paintless dent repair light board or reflector board, the fine detail of the process is unseen, and the technician cannot locate their tool specifically and cannot remove the damage accurately. The process of Paintless Dent Repair requires a technician to specifically push exact locations of metal to a precise height, which can only be witnessed with use of a PDR reading instrument, such as a paintless dent repair reflector board or paintless dent repair light.

Paintless dent removal takes time to learn it is more of an art than a specific set of skills. The ability to successfully remove dents and dings is learned through trial and error. An untrained individual can actually damage a dent if attempting a repair without the correct skills and knowledge. Paintless dent removal technicians can be located throughout the country by searching for their services online. It can be tedious to reach dents for such repair.

Electroluminescence (EL) is a characteristic of a material that enables it to emit light in response to an electrical field. At the sub-atomic level, the process behind electroluminescence is radiative recombination, also known as spontaneous emission. In radiative recombination, phosphorescent substances emit photons (light particles) in response to alternating electrical current. EL does not require heat to produce light, meaning an electroluminescent lamp is safe, efficient, long lasting, and cool to the touch. In the last 40 years that EL products have been available, only 2 dimensional applications have been commercially practical as controlled manufacturing processes were needed to produce an EL lamp. LumiLor® changed that.
