Is laser or iridium platinum better?

Is laser or iridium platinum better?

Iridium is said to be six times harder and eight times stronger than platinum with a 700° higher melting point. Iridium spark plugs have extremely fine electrodes while retaining excellent wear characteristics. Thanks to its strength, iridium spark plugs can last up to 25% longer than comparable platinum spark plugs.

What is the difference between NGK iridium and Laser iridium?

These two plugs perform similarly, due to their fine-wire tip design, but the service interval is different; the Laser Series are typically designed to last 80 to 100 thousand miles, where as the Iridium IX® spark plugs are designed to last 40 to 50 thousand miles.

Is Iridium IX or laser iridium better?

The NGK Iridium IX provides only 40 to 50 thousand miles, and the NGK Laser Iridium provides twice of it. The laser series are inclined to an impressive duration of 80 to 100 thousand miles!…Laser Iridium Vs Iridium Ix.

Iridium IX Laser Iridium
Mileage : 80- 100 Thousand Miles. Mileage : 40 – 50 Thousand Miles.

Is NGK Laser platinum good?

The platinum design has a longer service life compared to conventional nickel spark plugs. This spark plug provides stable idling, superior anti-fouling, improved fuel efficiency, and lower emissions. The only major downside of the NGK Laser Platinum PZFR5F-11 Spark Plug is its price point.

Can I use platinum instead of iridium?

Platinum may be harder than copper, but iridium is the hardest among the three, and iridium spark plugs outlast platinum spark plugs by almost twice the mileage. Platinum spark plugs offer a slightly cheaper but less reliable option if you don’t want to spend as much on iridium spark plugs.

Can you replace platinum spark plugs with iridium?

If your owner’s manual specifies iridium spark plugs, don’t downgrade to platinum spark plugs, double platinum spark plugs or even copper spark plugs. They won’t perform as well as the iridium spark plugs in this case. As the spark ignites the air/fuel mixture, the colder side electrode tends to “quench” the flame.

Is iridium more expensive than platinum?

Highly innovative technology goes into integrating the iridium into the superior material and this means they are more costly than copper or platinum They are well suited for high-performance engines. Advantages of Iridium Spark Plugs

What are the advantages of laser platinum spark plugs?

Platinum Spark Plugs (Pros) Lasts Longer Than Copper Many of the features on a platinum spark plug resemble those on a copper spark plug. Stays Cleaner Platinum tends to get hot a lot faster than other materials. Good Price

What is laser iridium?

All Laser Iridium plugs are an OEM design, made for a specific engine. Some feature a special resistor or electrode design, depending on the OE requirements. In their OE application, NGK ‘s Laser Iridium plugs typically last 80-100k miles.
