Glue Pulling Dents – Removing Dents Using Glue Pulling

Our mobile service covers Lancashire, Greater Manchester & North West Areas

Did you know we can use GPR on aluminium panels too? With the proven and effective glue pulling dents technique, you can benefit from a cost-effective and professional dent removal service. A GPR (Glue Pull Repair) on aluminium is carried out slightly differently than a panel made of steel, and the main factor is the temperature.

If you require dent removal or dent repairs, please call us directly on 07824426591 or use our online contact form.

First, the panel is polished and cleaned with isopropyl alcohol to remove any impurities, to give the best adhesion for the glue, as any standard glue pull repair would be carried out.

This is where we make the changes. As aluminium dissipates heat 15 times faster than steel, a heat gun is set up so a constant flow will be put into the surrounding area. When carrying out the repair, the panel temperature is kept to around 30-35 degrees. This is so the panel becomes more pliable, and helps with the pulling of the dent.

Another heat-related point to make is the choice of tab we use.

We use the Keco Dead Centre Blue tabs, as the material they are made of “keeps in” the heat longer than the more rigid Ice tabs for example, so the panel, glue and tab are relatively the same temperature when the pull is made. All these factors combined give us the optimum environment for the best results for glue pulling aluminium!
