When you use PDR2U Brisbane for your mobile paintless dent removal, you are choosing to repair your dents in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way. If you are wondering how dent repairs damage the environment, the facts may surprise you.
Panel beating and repainting are referred to as the ‘traditional repair method’ for car dent repairs. Using a series of hammers and dollies, the dent is beaten out of the panel before the area is sanded back ready for the application of body filler. Colour-matched car paint is then used to complete the repair process. As simple as this sounds, this traditional process has many associated risks.
Car fillers and paints can be incredibly toxic and harmful to both the human body and the environment. Volatile compounds present in solvents, paints, dust, and silica create a great risk to the employee sanding back and applying the paint, as breathing in these carcinogenic fumes and dust can create lifelong illnesses.
Car paints have been recognised as a source of occupational toxicity and studies have shown they not only damage DNA, but they can also irritate airways, nasal passages, cause lung disease, hearing loss, and cancer.
