THE NGK DIFFERENCE
NGK Spark Plugs have been around for more than 80 years
NGK says there is a number of elements which really set NGK products apart from the rest of the market.
Vehicle Specific Parts
Engine manufacturers spend many years researching and developing new engine designs. During this complex process, every engine component, including the spark plug, is engineered and tailored to perfectly match the application.
As the largest OE spark plug supplier in the world, NGK says it works hand-in-hand with vehicle manufacturers during the development of each new engine configuration to engineer spark plugs specifically designed to suit each engine’s individual requirements and ensure optimum performance.
It says that when spark plugs are commonised, important attributes are often compromised, and this can have a big effect on performance and longevity. These attributes include Heat Range, Centre Electrode Projection length, number of ground electrodes and ground electrode designs (including Double Fine Electrode (DFE) and Platinum Square Projection Electrode (PSPE) designs).
NGK says it prides itself on providing the broadest range of replacement spark plugs designed and engineered for more than 98 percent of the vehicles on Australian roads.
NGK and NTK products are all designed and manufactured in the same factories as the products NGK supplies to its OE customers across Japan, Europe, North America, Korea, Thailand, China and other regions involved in vehicle manufacturing. NGK says it remains the manufacturer of choice for vehicle manufacturers across the world.
Further to this, NGK says its products are manufactured with the highest levels of quality in design, raw materials and processes. It states it is driven by quality as well as delivering the best levels of range, supply and service to customers, and says it is very proud of its products’ performance.
Efficient, reliable and clean performance
As emission regulations continue to become more stringent, pressure on vehicle manufacturers to reduce emissions and improve efficiency has increased. NGK says its range of precious metal spark plugs with superior ignitability over conventional spark plugs meet and surpass the modern requirements of vehicle manufacturers.
It explains that precious metals such as Iridium and Platinum have much higher melting points over traditional metals such as Nickel. This allows centre electrode diameters to reduce from 2.5mm using Nickel, to 0.6mm using Iridium or Platinum.
NGK explains that the finer point means that once a spark forms, the flame kernel does not have a large mass of centre electrode that reduces absorption of heat and reduces the flame shadow impeding the flame progress. This equates to a more complete burn that translates to improved acceleration, smoother idling and improved fuel consumption, says NGK.
NGK says these features along with its technical support and availability are what sets NGK spark plugs apart from the pack and enables it to provide the greatest range of correct fitment spark plugs for Mechanical workshops throughout Australia, New Zealand and the rest of the world.
