The fundamental design of this new generation of Denso Iridium Power spark plugs retains the proven features used in Denso's OE products and combines a revolutionary Iridium alloy with laser welding technology that allows Denso to harness the power of Iridium. Using Iridium, which is six times harder and eight times stronger than platinum, the tip can be shrunk to only 0.4mm. This means the voltage requirements are decreased while firing performance is greatly improved. A U-Groove has been cut inside the ground electrode to maintain the large volume of space required to form the nucleus of a flame. While still keeping the required voltage low, this powerful technology enables excellent firing performance without increasing the spark gap. The tip of the ground electrode has been cut to form a taper. This greatly improves firing performance by reducing quenching. The extreme hardness and high melting point of Iridium prevented the use of this incredible metal until Denso perfected the Laser Welding Process, which provides a 360° seal so reliable the electrode resists wear even in the harshest conditions.Features:
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
WARNING: The wires of these products contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
