There’s no denying that in recent years a considerable effort has been made by the automotive industry to be more responsible when it comes to taking better care of the environment. Producing more electric vehicles was an important start, as it lowered emissions and reduced the carbon footprint. Many manufacturers intend to electrify all of their fleets in the next few decades. That said, even though there have been remarkable strides in this area, there are still mitigating circumstances that even drivers of electric vehicles need to face. And yes, we’re referring to the dings, dents, scratches, and abrasions that can occur occasionally.
A Better Way
This concept of going green extends far past the factories and designs being worked on by various engineers. One of the newest methods is related to auto body work and is being referred to as PDR (Paintless Dent Removal.) Unlike the conventional body shop, PDR involves removing the exterior panels of a vehicle and working on a dent from behind the affected surface. It’s quicker, cost-effective, and on the whole, more ecologically responsible.
Staying Green and Making Your Vehicle Look Clean
The process of PDR is remarkably greener than conventional methods. The first major aspect of the process is that the chemicals that are commonly used to strip paint are completely taken out of the equation. This means that the chemicals which can cause potential harm to the environment are missing. Because there’s no need to repaint the surface of a vehicle, the sanding, bonding, and hammering are also absent. All of these practices generate a considerable amount of waste that has a negative effect on the environment. By eliminating all of these implements of the process, PDR performs the necessary dent removal and repair but by being environmentally responsible and keeping the industry accountable. Many of the tools used in PDR are completely electricity-free, further reducing the carbon footprint left by the industry as a whole.
