New cold-glue dent pulling kit from Power-Tec

Glue pulling is an ideal repair process when there is restricted access behind the dent to be repaired, and when used with care the paintwork will not be damaged. This new kit from Power-Tec (part number 92645) uses cold glue rather than the traditional hot glue.

With only the heat from the operator’s hands required to soften the glue for use, no external heat source is needed. This is a slide-hammer system and the kit includes four different alloy glue-adaptor pads, the slide-hammer plus a guide handle that can be used either with the slide hammer or separately as a hand-puller.

Very easy to use: simply clean the area to be treated, soften the glue by working it in your hands then apply the cold glue to the most suitably shaped glue-adaptor pad. Attach the pad to the centre of the dent (or edge of larger dents) and start pulling.

The cold glue provides almost instantaneous strong adhesion, sufficient to pop out small dents and work steadily on larger repairs. The glue is chemically inert and does not damage paintwork. It is easily removed by hand when finished and can be reused if kept clean and free of grease.

As there is no need for an external heat source the kit is ideal for PDR specialists and SMART repairers. It is supplied in a robust, blow-mould storage case and replacement glue is available (Power-TEC part number 92646).
