The advanced guide to PDR glue pulling.

PDR Glue pulling is an amazing way to lift dents if used well, here we will go through some of the advanced techniques used by professional PDR technicians. If you just want to know more about the process head to the Glue stick guns.

Glue pullers.

Glue pullers come in different styles, I use a sliding glue puller as it fits better in my tool box, and is more sturdy. I always find that I get better results when I use a series of smaller pulls rather then a short sharp yank. Also some metals are better suited to the glue puller, you will find the BMW’s and Benz will glue pull well, while some of the Japanese makes and models will deform rather quickly.

Don’t be afraid to try the glue on larger dents, sometimes this is the quickest and easiest way to remove the volume of the damaged area. Even if the plug itself looks dwarfed by the ding.

Glue sticks.

Don’t think that because you use a certain glue stick and it works well, that you shouldn’t have different brands in the box. The reasons for this are that most glue sticks are designed to work well under certain conditions, some for hot weather, and others for colder weather. You will find a glue that works well in the Australian summer, is brittle and breaks in the German winter. So carry a few of each type.


This is used for removing the access glue and sometimes the plug itself, again this is determined on what sort of glue you are using, some normal rubbing alcohol’s will work fantastic with certain glues. But when you use it with a another glue stick, you will find it become greasy and wont perform as well.

Also I suggest that you don’t try and travel with any alcohol’s in your box, they are highly flammable and may have you answering some awkward questions in customs.
