Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF₆) is usually produced in bunches through the direct fluorination of high-purity sulfur.

Sulfur Hexafluoride’s generally high density and inaction make it perfect for appliance as an electrical insulator in high-voltage transformers, transmission lines, and microwave antennas. It also has been used as an insulating gas in double-windowpane glass. Being a high-density inert gas may also be as big a drawback for SF6 as it is a recommendation; its Global Warming Potential (GWP) is considered problematic. As such, there is some degree of active research to find a more environmentally attractive substitute to lessen its use. To date, it is still widely accepted as the insulator of choice in high-voltage applications, but it ought to be handled sensibly and taken back for reclamation instead of just vented in the process of repairing equipment.

High-purity Sulfur Hexafluoride has considerable application as an etchant in semiconductor assembly, as a manageable source of fluorine.
