  • Patent number: 10320156
    Abstract: A spark plug and a method for manufacturing a spark plug. The spark plug has a retaining mechanism holding the insulator in the body in a positive manner, by means of which the insulator is pressed against the seal seat in the longitudinal direction with a preloading force (Fv) in order to seal the passage against the flow of combustion gases through it. A positive-acting securing mechanism that at least partially overlaps the side of the retaining mechanism facing away from the front end is placed on, and attached to, the body. Provision is made so that the insulator projects beyond the side of the securing mechanism facing away from the front end, wherein the securing mechanism overlaps the retaining mechanism, forming a gap with the retaining mechanism and forming a gap with the insulator.
