Keeping the air clean using exhaust purification technologies
NGK helps protect the environment through air purification technologies compatible with enhanced exhaust regulations. We supply a full range of ceramics for both diesels and gasoline-powered vehicles. HONEYCERAM, a ceramic structure, carries a catalyst that neutralizes the harmful substances found in vehicle exhaust. Employing a honeycomb structure that makes it possible to create large surface areas within confined spaces, a HONEYCERAM unit small enough to be held in the hand incorporates a surface area equal to that of two soccer pitches. Thanks to our pursuit of thin walls and light weight to maximize exhaust purification efficiency, HONEYCERAM walls are a mere 0.05 mm thick. This also minimizes loss of engine power. Made using cordierite ceramics, HONEYCERAM demonstrates outstanding performance unimpaired by high temperatures and sudden temperature changes accompanying vehicle exhaust.
Note: HONEYCERAM is a trademark of NGK INSULATORS, LTD., registered in the U.S. and other countries.
