Sulfur hexafluoride is a colorless, odorless, non-toxic and non-flammable stable gas.

It is a new generation of ultra-high voltage insulating dielectric materials. Electronic grade high-purity sulfur hexafluoride is an ideal electronic etchant.

Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is an inorganic, colorless, odorless, non-flammable, extremely strong greenhouse gas and an excellent electrical insulator. SF6 has an octahedral geometry consisting of six fluorine atoms attached to a central sulfur atom. It is a high priced molecule. Typical non-polar gas, insoluble in water, but very soluble in non-polar organic solvents. It is usually transported as a liquefied compressed gas.

SF6 gas as one of the most chemically inert gases known, it is completely stable in the presence of most materials to temperatures of about 400°F (204°C) and has shown no breakdown or reaction in quartz at 900°F (482°C). Sulfur hexafluoride is slightly soluble in water and oil. No change in pH occurs when distilled water is saturated with sulfur hexafluoride.
