Our Repair Process
Aluminum Repair Certified
With the current trend to use aluminum more commonly within the automotive industry, the need for experienced mechanics who understand the best strategies to use in repairs related to this material increases greatly. The practices and tools required for aluminum repair are similar to those techniques developed for the repair of more traditional metals (automotive steel). However, as the auto industry continues to incorporate more and more aluminum into vehicles, the need for qualified, capable auto mechanics who can handle aluminum repairs of all sorts continues to rise.
If your aluminum skin panels have suffered damage that has created dents,
a process known as heat shrinking can be used to eliminate them.
The area of the aluminum panel that is situated around the dent is heated with a torch.
As a result of the stress created by the heat, the dent pushes outward.
Proper training is required for all mechanics who intend to specialize in welding
repairs for aluminum auto parts. Our industry-trained mechanics are skilled in all manner of aluminum repair tasks.
This is important, especially since aluminum does not change color, even when it
is fully heated to its melting point in the repair process.
