Paintless Dent Removal

Common Problems With Paintless Dent Removal

Paintless Dent Removal, also called bare metal dent removal, refers to a technique of eliminating small dents in the body of your car by performing an aesthetic dent removal process without using paint. As long as the paint layer is intact, a wide assortment of minor dented areas can be repaired with paintless dent removal. Paintless dent removal can be utilized on aluminum and magnesium panels alike. Paintless car dents usually occur on cars with factory installed alloy wheels as well as on cars with older or worn out paint jobs.

The reason why paintless dent removal is an effective method for dents and small creases is because paintless dent removal uses a metal pressurized device that “stops” the metal from building up the charged particles that form when a car drives over a dent. These metal particles have a tendency to attach themselves to the dented area and cause it to swell and form a permanent dented area. When this happens, a customer will be able to easily remove the unsightly dent without having to pay a fortune for professional bodywork.

The two most common parts that can be problematic during paintless dent removal are low spots and deep cracks. Low spots are often caused by metal flakes that have found their way into the crevices of the body panel. While deep cracks are often caused by improper installation procedures or engine problems, they can also form because of corrosion of the metal. When a body panel has a couple of deep cracks, the customer may have trouble finding the exact spot where the dent began. If the damage is extensive, the repair will have to come from somewhere else on the vehicle – typically on the underbody or the top of the dash board.

Fortunately, many car owners have taken steps to protect their investment by installing dent protection devices. Many of these are designed to be installed in a couple of different places on the vehicle – near the tire, or between the wheel and the frame. While these protectors do not prevent small dents, they can often make them less severe. The best way to find out if a particular protector is a good fit for your car is to go to a reputable auto body store and have them measure your car for a custom paintless dent removal device. In addition to measuring your vehicle, they should also be able to offer you consultations about which kind of protector would be the best fit for your situation.

Another common problem with paintless dent removal is slow pressure. While it would appear that the method is performing at its best, there are instances when damage occurs because of slow pressure. This can usually be attributed to a couple of factors. First, low pressure could be caused by improper alignment or the unit itself may have been improperly set up.

Another possible cause of damage is poor maintenance on the part of the driver. For minor dents, most experienced technicians recommend contacting a local paintless dent removal service. They can either perform the entire procedure on your behalf or refer you to a qualified technician for follow-up appointments.
