A little history: fifty million years ago, an asteroid composed almost entirely of the precious metal iridium (Ir-77) struck the earth. The extreme strength of this metal inhibited its large scale usage in spark plugs. However, through continuous technological advances, DENSO was able to harness the power of iridium. Their patented alloy is composed of iridium and complemented by rhodium (an even stronger metal) which is added to increase oxidation and wear resistance. DENSO was able to make this durable alloy workable by pioneering and patenting a laser-welding process. Little wonder why DENSO is trusted by experts not only in the country but all over the world.
