Iridium-Tipped Spark Plugs Can Get You Paid? 

 Iridium-tipped spark plugs are intended to improve engine ignition system performance and longevity. These spark plugs are designed to last longer than traditional copper-tip spark plugs, allowing for a more consistent spark over time. Iridium and platinum both allow for a stronger spark, which can help increase the power and acceleration of your vehicle. Iridium spark plugs, on the other hand, can last up to 25% longer than comparable platinum spark plugs. 


Iridium is a rare, dense, and incredibly tough metal that is highly corrosion resistant. Because of its scarcity and unique properties, it is also a highly valued precious metal. Iridium is used in many different applications, such as spark plugs, electrical contacts, medical devices, and even satellite technologies. 

Iridium is regarded as a strategic metal that should be recycled due to its high value and scarcity. Iridium recycling is like that of other platinum group metals (PGMs) and involves melting and purifying the metal. Other PGMs that can be recovered during the recycling process include palladium and rhodium, which are frequently found in some of the same applications as iridium. 


Iridium recycling can help to conserve natural resources, reduce energy consumption, and reduce the environmental impact of mining and processing new iridium. It can also be a source of revenue for some businesses and individuals who collect and recycle iridium scrap. 


Because of its high cost and scarcity, recycling iridium is not as common as recycling other metals such as copper and aluminum, but it is possible. 


The Noble6® Spark Plug Recycling Program allows customers to send in their used spark plugs to be recycled and receive compensation for the precious metals that are recovered. This is an excellent way for businesses to dispose of used spark plugs responsibly, save valuable resources, and be compensated for their efforts.
