In 1988 there was a serious prerequisite to the beginning of work on items for ignition, and primarily on spirals candles glow plugs of internal combustion engines. This was due to the currency problems, which almost completely stopped the flow of imported candles and candle-heads. Also affected by the desire to have a set of coils with different geometrical parameters (for fine-tuning of the engine).
It should be noted that the alloys with high content of iridium is used in the production of domestic candles and heads, were not suitable for modern high-speed engines. Practice has shown that the use of heads “Rossi” in comparison with GSK allows us to significantly raise the power, and significantly increased resource the spiral. Therefore, the first step was the creation of spirals, as the Italian for these two key indicators. The problem was solved rather simple way: the remains of burned-out, carefully preserved for several seasons, melted and stretched into a new wire. A further direction of searches was the production of the alloy with improved catalytic properties (encouraging results have already been obtained). But most importantly — it turned out that in our country produced alloys, the application of which heads GSK would significantly increase their competitiveness on the international level.
