Repairing car scratches & dents
In modern collision repair, both the quality of the work delivered, as well as the speed of repair, highly depend on the right combination of products, materials and systems.
When we talk about panel repair, we mean repairing damage to a panel without having to replace it. In some cases, it is possible to dismount the panel from the car in order to save time and material in masking, this can be a good choice especially when repairing car doors.
In general, there are 2 categories in panel repair:
1. Scratches, no dents: sanding out the damage can be sufficient.
The primer filler can be applied and sanded, followed by applying the paint system.
2. Deep scratches or dents: bare metal sanding and/or sheet metal work is needed (panel beating).
Putty must be applied to completely remove the damage. Followed by the steps as mentioned above.
Of course, the choice of the right abrasive material as well as the grit size are of crucial importance.
Also, using modern techniques such as UV priming significantly increases both the speed and the quality of the repair.
