Automotive paintless dent repair is to restore the dent part of the car painted body to its original state. Dent repair is based on the principles of physical optics and mechanics, using the lever principle to perfectly repair the dents of different sizes and depths that appear on the vehicle body due to various reasons from the outside world. The important premise is that the paint of the car body is not damaged and the sheet metal is not stretched too much. It is a modern car repair process.
Under normal circumstances, the car dent repair can reach the original state is the acute and obtuse dents. The dents without falling paint can be repaired as before. The hail dents can be repaired perfectly. But the corners and A/B pillars are not easy to repair.
The commonly used paintless dent repair tools are: Paintless dent repair induction heater, paintless dent repair LED light, hammer, repair pens, plastic/metal tabs and various types of dent puller, such as suction cup dent puller, slide hammer dent puller, lever dent puller, bridge dent pull, etc.
Advantages of paintless dent repair
Automobile paintless dent repair technology is also a very advanced technology in the world. This technology greatly shortens the repair time (approximately 10 to 90 minutes to repair a dent), and greatly reduces the cost (about 50% of traditional sheet metal and painting). In addition, the recessed parts repaired by this technology will never be deformed or faded, completely making the vehicle show its original style again. It can be applied to the dents of door covers, front fins, rear compartment covers of automobiles produced in various countries, and the repair range is over 90%.
The dent repaired by a technician with good car dent removal technology cannot see the problem from any angle such as the front and the side. And the repaired place is the same as the original paint surface. The lines and size of the paint pattern are the same.
Compared with traditional dent repair
If the traditional dent repair technology is used to repair the dent on the surface of the car door, the door trim panel needs to be removed first. And then the inner side is supported with a iron or a crowbar, and the outer side is hit with a hand hammer. After shape is basically flat, there are still small dents and unevenness, and the paint surface is also damaged during the hammer repair process. So the paint needs to be repaired. When the paint surface is repaired, it is necessary to repeatedly scrape, polish the putty, and spray the paint multiple times. This is not only time-consuming, but also prone to quality defects such as paint color difference, sagging, and orange streaks. The quality of the repair cannot be guaranteed. To make matters worse, the paint dust flying in the atmosphere during spraying will seriously pollute the environment. In addition, the original paint cannot be restored at all unless it is returned to the automobile manufacturer for respray. It is impossible for ordinary 4S shops or repair shops to spray the hardness of the original paint. Therefore, if the car paint doesn't hurt to the point where it must be sprayed, it is generally not recommended to spray paint.
