dent repair (PDR), also known as "paintless dent removal", is a
collection of techniques for removing minor dents and dings from the body of a vehicle.
A wide range of damage can be repaired using PDR; however, usually if there is
paint damage, PDR may be unsuitable.
The most common practical use for PDR is the repair of hail damage, door dings, minor body creases, and minor bumper indentations. The technique can also be applied to help prepare the damaged panel for paint. Such applications are referred to as "push to paint", or "push for paint".
Limiting factors for a successful repair using PDR include the flexibility of the paint, and the amount the metal has been stretched by the damage incurred. Hence, often extremely sharp dents and creases may not be repairable - at least not without painting afterwards.
You take pride in your vehicle, in
its timeless design and effortless style. But regardless of the care you take
in maintaining the appearance of your vehicle, sometimes damage can´t be
avoided. Whether it's a rock chip, a spill, a sharp object piercing the
interior, a wheel making contact with the curb, or seasonal hazards like road
grime or salt attacking your rims, Knauz has a solution.
Few parts of your vehicle are as
readily noticed as the alloy rims. Unfortunately, even the most stunning wheels
are susceptible to damage.
If winter road salt or a bump against the curb has left your rims looking less than spectacular, our body shop has the technology to make the finish look just like new at a fraction of the cost of a new rim.
Please note that not all wheel damage can be repaired, depending on severity.
When a stone makes contact with your
windshield it can create significant appearance and safety implications,
especially if left untreated.
To avoid replacing the entire windshield, our body shop can fix cracks and stone chips quickly using resins to seal the glass, and polish to take care of pitting.
Keep in mind that this system is only intended to repair minor problems outside of the driver´s field of vision, and is not meant to take care of an issue that has failed a state safety inspection program.
