High Ignitability NGK Spark Plugs is introducing the latest technology in high ignitability spark plugs to the automotive aftermarket: NGK RUTHENIUM HX™. Today's efficient engine designs create more power while using less fuel and this has shortened the life of traditional Iridium and Platinum spark plugs. In response, NGK's patented RUTHENIUM technology is used for maximum durability and performance in newer engines where efficiency is demanded.

DFE (double fine electrode) maximizes ignitability whil reducing emissions for low heat engines. NGK-patented design recommended for non-turbo applications.

 

PSPE® (projected square platinum electrode) provides the best ignitability and service life for high heat engines. NGK-patented design recommended for turbo and supercharged engines

NGK Ruthenium HX™ provides more complete fuel burn than other precious metal spark plugs. The results are quicker throttle response, smoother idle and better cold starts.

DESIGN

HIGH IGNITABILITY

  • DFE & PSPE® tip designs
  • Superior Oxidation Resistance
  • Advanced high-ignitablity technology
  • Enhanced blistering/anti peeling

The NGK Difference

NGK’s patented Ruthenium technology is available in our most advanced OEM designs to provide the most optimal durability at high temperatures in various driving conditions.

DURABILITY

 

  • Combustion pressure testing to maintain stable performance (Diagram 1)
  • Acceleration testing for improved acceleration performance (Diagram 2)
  • Mechanical vibration testing
  • Thermal shock testing to -40°F
  • Tightest resistor manufacturing process in the industry
  • Manufacturing in our ISO 11565 certified manufacturing facility
  • Gap measurement with laser precision throughout production process
  • Ground electrodes are accurately positioned with 360° welding process

ACCELERATION Test

All NGK spark plugs must pass extensive testing procedures and quality checks
