PDR Tool Showcase – Cold Glue
In today’s video, we are revisiting a job that we discussed a few days ago – the massive dent on a 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan. We will be looking at Glexo Cold Glue and how it works when it comes to removing dents from car panels.
Cold glue is exactly how it sounds. While almost all of the commonly used glues in the PDR industry require some kind of heat to help it adhere, the Glexo Cold Glue does not. How it works is that you simply apply a small amount to the pull tab of your choice and it adheres just enough so that the dent or damage can be pulled out without over pulling or extending the damage.
As you can see, the majority of the dent on the Tiguan has been pulled out but there is a lot of work that needs to be done before we can hand it over to the owner. In fact, almost 90 percent of the damage has been taken out with just cold glue and a slide hammer. We did knock out some of the crowns and do some blending as well. We also used a small amount of hot glue to get out some of the smaller dents, but it was amazing to see how much of the damage we could get out with only cold glue. We still have not removed the panels or pushed on the back sides of the cars yet and we have gotten rid of 90 percent of the damage.
If your interest has been piqued, you can get your hands on the Glexo Cold Glue from their website at www.GlexoTools.com. With the hot glue, we used the KECO K-Bar to get out some of the damage. The Glexo Cold Glue is definitely the best cold glues available for PDR and is something all PDR technicians must have in their shops. The Glexo tabs are also made of metal as opposed to the regular tabs that are made from plastic. They are also adjustable and lock into the slide hammer which prevents them from coming lose, falling to the ground, and collecting dust and dirt. One of the best things about the Glexo Cold Glue is that is the tabs are reusable and they come with an extra pack of glue for when the strength of the original starts wearing off.
To get the glue ready, all you have to do is work your fingers over it till it gets stickier. Then, all you have to do is put the pull tab on the damaged area and use the slide hammer to knock out some of the damage. It can be used again if needed but it usually takes about 2-3 pulls to get out a reasonably sized dent. We will continue working on the car and get all the damage out before the customer comes to pick up the car on Monday.
